Enlarging a Classic Fifties Modern House
Tuesday, 19 July 2011 06:43

01-HANSEN-Rendering

Kenneth E. Hobgood Architects in Raleigh recently completed the renovation phase of a mid-century modern house in Durham and is about to begin construction on phase two: a 1200-square-foot addition that will honor, without imitating, the original house.

When new owners hired the firm to renovate and enlarge the 2337-square-foot house that architect Kenneth Scott, AIA, designed in 1958, the design team immediately recognized the challenges they faced.

“We knew it was going to be difficult because of our respect for the original house,” said project architect Bob Thomas, AIA, a principal in the firm. “This was a renovation, not a restoration, so it needed to accommodate a family of five, including three young children, and lifestyle changes from the Fifties to today. So we had to strike a balance between opening up the space yet transforming the interior respectfully.”
