Two Story Four Square
Two Story Four Square is a single-family residence in Boise, Idaho completed in 2012. The project is located on a 50’ x 100’ level parcel the North End Historic District. Although some surgical remodeling done in the existing 1910 Four Square, the project is primarily a 12’ deep backyard addition. The ground level is split between a new custom kitchen and an outdoor covered dining room, connected to the existing dining room with a custom accordion glass wall. The second level of the addition contains a new bedroom, bathroom, and closet.
The design is focussed on precise framing and siding details, with window groups proportioned and placed to balance daylight with privacy. The roof overhang projects sharply to provide added protection from the hot western sun in this part of Idaho.
