As the initial phase of a larger residential compound, this project was designed to serve as a temporary living quarters for the clients while the main residence was designed and built. The client wished for the architecture of the entire compound to be designed in the authentic manner and style of 1920's “American Tudor.” This project became our laboratory in devising and testing the many traditional construction techniques, materials, and colors that would ultimately be employed on the main house. Adapted from a nondescript three-car garage structure existing on the property, this small, playful, cottage eventually became a guesthouse to the main residence.
