Striving to maintain and add value to their property, while reluctant to tear down their house, the owners approached Cunningham | Quill Architects to conduct a full renovation and addition while respecting the scale and character of the existing structure.
The new addition, a rear kitchen space, wing with master suite and garage, and an expanded attic level, creates much-needed space for this growing family. The extensive renovation reinforced and restored the house’s aging foundation, structure, details, and materials, along with replacing windows and updating the storm water management systems through re-grading of the backyard.
Additions to the house made the most of existing spaces with minimum impact. An expanded kitchen and living space propel from the back of the house. Lined with windows, the space ties the interior living areas to the landscape. On the attic level, the former storage space was opened to create a light-filled guest suite and office, allowing open views to the front and rear.
