We took what was a dark, awkwardly planned 1920's Dutch Colonial and transformed it into an open, bright space that captures the connection to the dense residential neighborhood. The existing kitchen was tucked into a dark corner and had a view of the detached garage. Our family-oriented clients wanted the kitchen to be the hub of the home and emphasis was put on daylighting and views of the backyard and street. Inspired by a window-filled conservatory, we designed a small addition to the home so that we could create better flow throughout the entire home.
