This shell of an old pig sty was falling apart at the seams, stripped down to its bare structural shell. The shell itself was deemed to be intact but adding to it or subtracting from it would spoil its architectural state. The solution: add in an entirely new prefabricated home, dropping it in from above so it does not even have to touch the existing structure. Openings in the newly built house correspond to existing perforations in the shell of the old structure.
