With it's proximity to downtown and the new LRT line Hollyrood is a mature neighborhood that is ripe for remodels as well as infills. This project demanded more square footage then the existing bungalow could provided. The existing structure was taken to down to all but a few walls and then rebuilt to accommodate a second story. Simple and low maintenance materials were choose for the exterior including standing seam, fiber cement and cedar. A restrained palette was maintained in the interior to create a non-distracting, open and light filled space.
