Fenimore Road Addition + Renovation

 

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.
