this is gorgeous! I love the awning, the reuse of the existing stair footprint, and the (minimal but impactful) new brickwork.
The things I would change are:
- mount mailboxes on fence instead of building a special house for them.
- do not extend porch across the building. Although I love the way it looks, I do not want to block the light coming into the lower unit. For that reason, I would also move the bikes and the fence the are placed in front of the lower window.
Thanks for this - nice work!
