The goal of the renovation was to accommodate a growing family – by providing spaces where everyone could be together as well as spaces where they also have privacy. By altering the functions of rooms, moving walls and relocating stairs, we were able to open the house and still create distinct spaces for the family to use.
Our clients are college professors and their lives are centered around books. Rather than create a separate library, we incorporated books in every part of the renovation to serve as a unifying detail throughout the home.
The third floor dormers in the master suite all function differently. One is an office nook, one is a sitting area and one has a built-in window seat that looks out on the treetops.
