Fenimore Road addition + renovation
Office: Resolution: 4 Architecture
Location: Mamaroneck, NY
Area: 5,000 sq ft
Project Type: Single-Family Residential
Completion Date: Under Construction
This project is a renovation and addition to a house designed by Kaneji Domoto, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright who was both an architect and landscape architect. The challenge was to respect, and enhance when possible, the rather unique, sometimes quirky, existing details and Domoto’s sensitive attitude toward the landscape. The existing house felt woven in with its surroundings, cantilevering over a small stream and surrounded by green. At the same time, major upgrades and repairs were required to make the house functional, safe, and more energy efficient as a primary residence for a young family of four.
