This second project for this client involved gutting the kitchen, back entry, powder room and removing an original enclosed porch on the south side of the house. The design included a new sunroom, powder room, and an eating area along with a kitchen remodel. Below the addition, we designed a new sunken exercise room with increased headroom for equipment. Requested outside was a smaller, but usable patio area for entertaining and grilling by family and friends. The challenge of the eating area addition, which also included a mudroom/pantry room, was to not interfere with access for cars into the existing detached garage at the rear of the lot. The design solution became a staggered rear addition with angled corners to allow for as much driving/maneuvering area as possible. The interior detailing was classic, but transitional with cleaner, fresher styling than traditional Colonial architecture. The exterior facades compliment and enhance the original Georgian house with iron railing ornamentation on flat roofs so the second floor windows could be preserved. All windows were placed for maximum light and views to take advantage of the newly landscaped back yard and allow for an indoor/outdoor transparency at the eating and sunroom additions. All additions were well insulated to minimize the heating and cooling requirements of the house and keep the 1930's house as "green" as possible.
