The commission consisted of an addition and limited remodel of an existing home, built in the early 1980s. Created to accommodate the owner’s desire for more space to house a large family and to display items acquired during various world travels, the addition doubled the size of the original structure. The greatest design challenge for the studio came in integrating the new addition with the existing house, a challenge overcome by a clean, linear plan and well proportioned interior spaces. The exterior of the addition matches the Texas regionalist style of the original home and the interior combines a Texas inspired style with artifacts and materials imported from Africa.
