Canopy was asked to explore solutions that would create additional space for a 160 year old home in the historical town of Galena, Illinois. Following multiple studies, this rendered option (shown) was selected by the owner, presented to the township’s Historical Commission, and approved for construction. The circular turret will expand the ground level’s great room and gracefully extend the outdoor porch. On the second floor, the new volume will provide a study for a connecting guest bedroom. The style and proposed materiality of the design respond successfully to the home’s historical context.
