Geometric view for their new bedroom.

An unconventional window in the familiar gable shape gives the end wall of this bedroom addition a striking appearance and an expansive view. Architect Michael Rubenstein of Healdsburg, California, combined standard rectangular windows and sliding doors with custom-made triangular and curving sections.

Before the remodel and addition, owners Josie and Tom Lennon had a cramped bedroom and bath. In place of these rooms, Rubenstein designed a new bath with a curving glass-block wall and generous closet.

The 14- by 21-foot addition serves as the new bedroom. From the outside, the addition logically extends the wing of the house by retaining the same ridge line and roof pitch. Inside, its ceiling is open to the 13-1/2-foot-high ridge. Cedar paneling covers walls and ceiling.
