This home is part of a well-established community comprising homes built in the 1950s and 1960s, and the client had grown to love the neighborhood. Because of several additions over time, the floor plan became disorganized, leading to dysfunctionality that was not conducive to modern living. The previous additions and renovations were detrimental to the aesthetic and liveability of the home.

The team revamped the design by creating interconnected living and kitchen spaces, adding a second floor to create separate bedroom suites, and converting the back area into a screened porch/game room that offers a view of the pool. The reorganized floor plans utilized the primary existing structures, keeping some character to align with the neighborhood in a modern way.

With these changes, the house now has a more functional and accessible layout, providing the family with a comfortable living space and ample natural light.

From the Judges
