The Modern House in Creve Coeur Addition

Tom and Megan Wall always planned to expand their 2,700-square-foot home with an addition. When Tom started planning the addition in 2016, his goal was to create a space that would match the style of the house, while providing a place for storage and room to entertain. The home’s proximity to the property line meant that the Walls were limited in how far they could expand to the north, so the addition would have to run east/west. However, the home’s north-end roof already had a vault running in that direction. Creating a two-story addition to the existing home allowed the new roofline to mirror the old one by sitting adjacent to and above it. It also enabled the Walls to have a more dynamic rear elevation than the one that would have been created with a single story.

The plans included a new master suite, expanded laundry room, a powder room, a second-floor multipurpose room, a guest room with bath, a new basement with a playroom for the boys, an entertaining space for the grownups, an additional bathroom, and unfinished storage space. Once complete, the home was more than 5,900 square feet. The home’s largest family space is the loft-style multipurpose room on the new second floor. The renovation also includes a fantastic and modern pool and outdoor living area with plenty of space for summer cookouts and entertaining.
