This contemporary renovation blends the old with the new. Rather than removing all the original furnishings, an effort was made to preserve the character of the house. First, we added where an expanded program required it. Secondly, new and existing interiors were updated throughout the house, handling with care to ensure an experience that is unified. The final product: partition walls that once separated living, dining, and kitchen spaces, were removed for a kitchen island that both defines and complements this singular space.
