Schoepp-Thornton Addition

A house addition for two artists and their children, this project asserts the independant character of this family while carefully fitting into a neighborhood of modest bungalows near the Kimball Museum in Fort Worth. The original house is left essentially untouched with new spaces built into an independant concrete block settled into the trees in the backyard.

The building in constructed out of structural insulated concrete panels and raw steel.
