Triangular Home Gets an Angled Addition

A single subtle visual trick turns would could be  a cumbersome extension into a more natural expansion in this traditional brick Dutch home – a roof form picked up in a strategically-sliced outside wall.

Sloped roofs dominate the original, which are picked up in the concrete angles found in the first-level addition by  Baksvan Wengerden that creates additional living space and connection to the backyard.

The light and clean simplicity of the clean-lined concrete translates into a bright white interior via a nearly-seamless, floor-to-ceiling glazed separator.

Modern fireplace, fixtures and kitchen on the main floor make the whole place feel contemporary, while much of the outside remains original.
