pencil and paper, photcopy, colored pencil

Addition to a split-level house of the early 1960s in a park-like setting. A new upper level accommodates a master bedroom suite with sweeping views of the Hudson River and the Catskills. This elevation is inspired by the tradition of rhetorical western false-front architecture, expanding the chimney flue housing into a broad shingled facade facing south towards the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
