This project extends a traditional House in Southampton with 2- floor tower in the southwestern corner. The proposed addition preserves the style of the original design by the renowned architect Stanford White: traditional wood construction, colors and materials that are coherent with the existing building. At the same time, modern computational technology ensures the best illumination for reflecting and interior lighting. The first floor comprises an intimate living space complemented by a chimney, a bar, and a game table. The second floor consists of a children’s’ playroom with a conical roof. Since the 1st and 2nd floors aren’t internally connected, helicoidal stairs around the tower provide 2nd level access.
