HOMES

The original home in Forest Hills was designed and built by architect Stark West in 1965 as a modern interpretation of a traditional “Four Square” floor plan. The current homeowners have collaborated with Shipley Architects on of a series of renovations and additions over the last 15 years.

The significant additions include the carport/studio and master bedroom built in the backyard, a two-story “tower,” and a pool built in the side yard. The new work is not intended as a restoration of the midcentury style, nor do materials and massing of the additions replicate the original materials or forms, but they forge a strong relationship with the original house by means of scale, harmonious materials, and shared exterior space.
