Torelli Residence Addition
Newton, Massachusetts




This "sun space" addition serves the dual purpose of expanding the family's living space and of collecting excess morning solar gain to be distributed to the remainder of the house in the afternoon.  The addition incorporates an existing flat roofed porch adjoining the living room and kitchen of the client's Victorian home.  The design utilizes one of the original porch screen walls and extends the interior past this framework to face a formal flower garden.


Care was taken in the detailing of the materials to integrate the addition with the historic character of the house.
