2nd Story Addition & Remodel

When the owners bought the home 8 years prior, it had the good bones of a classic 1960s mid-century home and a unique 1-story layout that lent itself for entertaining, but it had been poorly remodeled over decades. Care was taken during design to restore and enhance the mid-century character of the house throughout, including deep low-pitched overhangs, maintaining a sunken living room and vaulted ceilings, and large floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors in strategic locations. The original home was taken down to the studs to allow for all new systems and insulation, and a 2nd story was added to give the family more space. The kitchen was expanded and reorganized for a better workflow and additional storage. An architectural staircase was strategically positioned in the plan to flood the center of the house with natural light. While the original limestone was maintained on the exterior of the home, a modern black brick was introduced at the fireplace and chimney that became a spine for the house, seen from all sides both upstairs and down. A new primary suite was added upstairs along with an office that feels like a treehouse with large windows overlooking the dozens of live oak trees on the property. The new office above created a new covered patio below, adding another living space and helping to further improve the connection between inside and outside.
