The origin of this project can be traced back to the late sixties with a design for a house for A.C. Smith. The current owners restored the house and requested to extended it. The addition of a separate pavilion was agreed upon to maintain the integrity of both the existing house and the new architecture. A connecting wedge was employed piercing the original volume that allows the new to be independent and enjoy a love affair with the old.
