Adding a garden workroom and a master bath.
Designer Albert Hilton Cohen of Edmonds, Washington, came up with the answer: a garden workroom addition that also includes, past French doors, an enlarged and updated master bath.
A window wall and five venting skylights give the new garden room as much daylight as most greenhouses have, without the overabundance of light a fully glazed structure can deliver, particularly in summer. The addition is at ground level (the house sits higher, on an 18-inch-tall foundation), and is linked closely to the garden.
Connecting the master bedroom with the remodeled bath required sacrificing a small bedroom-little missed, since the children are now grown and gone. New closets and built-ins in this connector space (two steps above the garden room) turn it into a convenient dressing area.
