A residential renovation was designed in preparation for retirement. Both the cluttered garage and failing balcony have been converted into spaces for retirement construction activity. Specifically a workshop, balcony and solarium will be built. The solarium will also double as a tea house for formal ceremonies.

The workshop is scheduled first since participating in the construction process is part of the retirement activity. Details are more intricate as challenging craftsmanship is specifically being sought out for enjoyment. An aerogel insulated translucent panel is being mounted into the garage door to permit light into the workshop even during the winter months. This simultaneously provides an opportunity to emit light from within the workshop through a large uninterrupted opening.

New site features will also be rebuilt from the existing balcony wood. Special care was taken to target details that could accommodate weaknesses in the older wood.
