Owyang Addition

Client: Dr. and Mrs. Owyang
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Size: 300 sf 


The modern home’s minimalistic aesthetic set the stage for the simple, elegant, two-story sunroom addition. Dedicated to precise detailing, the new light-filled space blends harmoniously with the existing interior and unites the kitchen and living rooms.


Designed to replace a leaking addition, the sunroom is integrated with electric shading, radiant floor heating, a high-performance glass system and an engineered skylight framing system with lift and glide doors.  The result is two, year-round rooms with expansive views of the lush, four-season landscape.


The addition’s low slope roof was lifted to provide symmetry with the house’s existing vaulted ceiling and roof and first floor framing was cantilevered to maximize the interior with minimal impact to the Zen landscape.
