This Long Island home has been making the rounds online — it recently won the 2008 Peconic Honor Award for Architecture/Renovations & Additions from the AIA and is featured in Dwell's upcoming April issue. The new owners, Joe Dolce and Jonathan Burnham, hired the original architects Bates Masi+ to update and expand the 35-year-old home while retaining the integrity of the original...

In addition to updating the kitchen and bath, the new plan pushed out the south wall by 5 feet — but retained the original materials to use in the new design. Because the home was clad in 12" cedar planks, the new addition (only about 250 square feet) is hidden in the patina of the original cedar planks!

The fifth image is from a 1970 issue of House Beautiful that featured the original design.
