10 Wednesday, July 13, 'o Building Home Improvements .House Of The Wee' 'Raised Ranch' By Any Other Name Is Gaining Popularity By DAVID L. BOWEN Here's a riddle for anyone interested In modern residential architecture: What do you call « house that has tht space and cost-economy o! a two-story, the one-level living arrangement of a ranch, and the half-flight stairways of a split? The most commor designation in the New York region where the style is gaining popularity- is 'raised ranch." Architect Rudolph Matern, who designed this excellent example of the style prefers to call It a 'sunken two-story." Both ot these labels ignore the influence ot the split level concept which did contribute to the split broke tiring stairways in two and got half the basement up out of the ground. This type handles stairways in the same fashion tt~t gets the other half of the basement up. While you're puzzling over bow to get ranch two-story and split all into one name we're going to bypass the argument call this house B-19 in the House of the Week scries and let its six upper floor and three lower floor rtoms speak tor themselves. You'll note that one of the in novations in this treatment of the new style is that there is a mid level grade entrance both at th front and the back. In other ex amples of this type in House o the Week the only route dow from the upper floor was via the front foyer. This one improves circulation by providing access to the backyard and the recreationli room from the rear of the house. I \Vhlle it has an impressive appearance B-19 should not be as expensive as it looks. The enclosed area of the upper floor is 1471 sq. ft. There ts no extras structural work necessary for tho lower floor since it replaces what would ordinarily be basement. Of couse more brick veneer is required on the exterior than in a ranch and to utilize tho lower level this space must be partitioned and finished. Budget-conscious families might cecp in mind that finishing the ower floor could be accomplished by a do-it-yourselfer long ifter the family has moved into 10 upper floor. Dimensions of B-19 are 5V by 28' 8". Additional Details An unusual feature that both extends the living area and adds jlamor to th exterior is the can ilevered deck along two sides of the living room. Big sliding glass doors give access to th deck from the living room so that for warm weather partie it can nearly double the livln room space. Kor convenience i serving outdoor snacks acccs to the deck also is provided from the dining room. The wall around the dccx increases privacy jives a pleasing horizontal o the front.
