The homeowners wanted a Zen home office for a reiki/healing practice with direct access for visitors from the backyard. The beautiful country-style house had a generous lot with an irregular shape and acute angles. The side addition wraps around to the rear of the house. The proposed design featured a simple shed roof at the side addition and a hip roof at the front and back. The 500-square-foot addition incorporates a great deal of symmetry as reflected in the skylights, lighting, closet layouts and window placement. To learn more about this project, e-mail
