Mark DuBois’s work on this 1950s rancher consisted of recasting the landscape connection and pairing the quiet, closed home with new, open public space. He clad the existing structure, now a bedroom wing, in clear cedar and extended it into the large, lush backyard with a perpendicular glass living pavilion. The material palette of soft grays, greens, and silvers carries from inside to out: aluminum window systems, stone floors and patios, and zinc roof fascia. There’s warmth and texture here, too. In addition to the ipe-topped trellis and deck, the kitchen’s monolithic wood-block wall is handmade with strips of American walnut. Our jury applauded the effort, calling it “an amazing transformation, one that does nice things in a kind of plain way, and stays in the motif of the existing house.”
