This small project is a case of ‘less is more’. Originally three rooms in the back of this historic house…kitchen, breakfast area and full bathroom…the goal quickly became one of editing. The entire rear portion of the house was gutted down to the bricks and joists to make room for a singular space. A new 9’ door opening was make in to the rear, brick wall to create a more visually open space and to allow daylighting deeper in to the house. Another wide opening was made at the opposite end of the room to incorporate the new room in to the rest of the house. Custom cherry cabinets were designed to tailor the room in a clean and form-fitting manner. The details of the lighting, radiant in-floor heating as well material selections help to make this space a warm and inviting update to this family home.
