Craftsman Conversion


We gutted and reconfigured the first floor of this early 20th c craftsman style brick home to make it more inviting and to expand interior light and views. This work was phased over several years, with an eye toward stylistic harmony and replication.

Work included the kitchen, dining room, living area, entry hall and stair. We added a first floor bay projection, compatible with the home's exterior, to expand floor area and create an open kitchen. We "surgically" opened up an enclosed stair by partially removing one wall at just above the half-way point.

Great attention was paid to matching, reworking and extending the existing white oak floors, paneling and trim. At the same time, the floor plan is modern and open, and transforms a previously dark home into a series of well-defined, but interconnected, sunny spaces.
