Focusing  on the owner’s desire for an open, light-filled space, the design-build team transformed the 1950’s maze of existing rooms and hallways into a spacious home suitable for entertaining, while respecting the scale of the original structure and the aesthetics of the historic neighborhood. A standing seam roof was installed, with hand-turned ridges, just as those original to the area. 

Interior walls were relocated and ceilings were raised. Four new skylights, including one above the master shower, flood the home with natural light and warmth. The covered patio and outdoor kitchen enable year-round hosting. The private patio off the master bath features an outdoor shower and private courtyard. The walk-in closet, utility and butler’s pantry provide ample storage. An antique maple butcher-block was integrated into custom cabinetry, which was styled to be functional and efficient while maintaining this historic element.

From the Judges
The judges praised several parts of the project, including the outdoor kitchen, the outdoor shower, the patio, the pantry, and the shelving.
