After searching for the perfect home for their expanding family, the Berrys concluded that the best option was to add on to their existing home. Constrained by the 1/2 acre site, JSR Associates, Inc. needed to evaluate the most efficient way to maximize the new space and create zones of work and play that would coincide with the needs of the client.

The result is a house that is scaled to blend in with its context from the street elevation but is expansive and sophisticated from the more private back yard. The interior spaces blend the existing smaller scaled rooms with the new grander spaces that look out over the sloping back yard, terraces and in ground pool. From the coffered ceilings and truss system to the built-in cabinetry, JSR kept the grand scale intimate through their attention to materials and details.

JSR’s design provides a home that expands with the family, “growing in place” to meet current needs and those of the future.
