Viewing Porch:
Newton, MA

The Owners wished to explore the idea of a new viewing porch adjacent to the master bedroom study, but were concerned whether the new porch would complement the massing and vocabulary of the existing house. A hand-drawn sketch was produced during the first meeting with the Owners to demonstrate that, in fact, the porch would be a good idea. Subsequent 3D computer models gave the Owners visual confirmation of what they would be building, while structural 3D models assisted the contractor in visualizing the issues involved with the new work. The Owners were thrilled with the results.
