Screen House Randy Bens Architect

The project brief was to add a new floor to an existing 1954 bungalow, which is situated in a post war suburban neighbourhood in the city of New Westminster, BC.
The neighbourhood sits at the prow of a hill, and is rich with modernist architecture from that era. The existing house was an L-shaped bungalow which was too small for my clients, an artist and psychologist who have three boys ages 17 to 26.
The new floor would be the domain of the parents, and the boys would acquire main floor bedrooms of a more suitable size.
The addition would be composed of a studio, master suite, and a deck to take advantage of the view. Architecturally, the goal was to knit together the old and new with simple gestures and materials that would be sympathetic to their context, yet fresh.
