2016 Region 3 North Central CotY Award Winner, Residential Addition Over $250,000
This 1937 home held great charm, but lacked functionality for a modern-day family. Although the home sits on a large corner lot, current-day setbacks deemed the entire property unbuildable. A variance would be required and any changes to the exterior, especially an addition, would be highly scrutinized. We used great care and dialogue with municipalities and neighbors to develop an acceptable solution that would maintain the home’s charming presence in this established neighborhood. The overarching design concept for the clients was to create open, airy, clean spaces that better flow together without compromising the feel of this right-sized family home.
