He split the building vertically down the middle. On the right-hand side, next to the empty lot, he designed a massive box bay that ran from the bottom of the old deck on up past the old roofine by a few feet. Te bay comes out 4 ft. from the home. Tis was accomplished by running structural members 15 ft. back into the existing foor and ceiling joists, cantilevering the new bay forward. On top, the new bay was capped by a 4-ft. eve, slightly tilting upward. "We extended the bay up past the roofine to emphasize the corner even further," notes Rossington. "It gives it a little more volume, a little more presence." New abutted glazing was added in the living room on the second foor as well as in the master bedroom on the third foor. Te efect is an unobstructed view previously described. Te left side of the structure was left almost unchanged. Te deck was updated with steel rails in the same posi- tion. A new Fleetwood sliding glass door is slightly larger ofering more view and light. Where the new box bay is a ftting end cap to the row of six homes, the untouched left side merges seamlessly with the exact setbacks of the other fve homes. Below the deck, a new garage door with translucent lites ofers additional drama. Te opaque glass allows light into the once dark garage. And at night, when the light is on, the frst foor glows attractively through the white panes. A color specialist, interior designer Gale Melton, played an enormous role in making the new fa├žade pop, says Rossington. On the bottom a gray slate masonry veneer fts well against an earthy rust-colored stucco. Te slate gray reappears to accentuate the entirety of the new box bay. Te gray Benjamin Moore paint covers sleek modern lines created by planks of western red cedar. "Gale played a big role in getting these very bold colors to work," says Rossington. "It is not the typical color scheme that I would do by myself. She was really integral in pulling it all together."
