Project Description

This terraced house was built for a private client in the Village of Mamaroneck. The building is a 2 story wood frame construction with a masonry basement and is oriented 32 Degree east of south. The building is a retrofit and extension of an existing build originally built in 1963 and received EnerPHit certification in April 2014.

The entire retrofitted building is using the existing footprint and first floor framing of the existing building. The existing roof had to be carefully deconstructed and all asphalt shingles where recycled. An additional second floor was added and the south roof converted into a terrace to take advantage of the south view to the harbor. The entire building was insulated with an additional outside insulation layer and received a vented horizontal cladding.
