Carlsbad, CA | Bart M Smith AIA, DZN Partners
Encinitas, California based DZN Partners Architects designed an attractive and energy conserving addition to an existing tract home. Removing a wing of the existing residence and building the addition parallel to the long axis of the lot allowed DZN Partners to face the residence toward the adjacent Agua Hedionda Lagoon. Twisting the traditional home archetype the living space is on the second floor and enjoys a unique indoor/outdoor sensation through the use of folding openings and generous exterior balconies. Complementing the residence the property is planted with grapevines, native vegetation and has the Shewanna creek running over the western end of the lot.
