Bungalow Renovation

The homeowners moved into this Palisades bungalow after falling in love with the house and its period styling, but they wanted to expand the living space to make it more comfortable for three growing children. To that end, we constructed a one-story addition to house an expanded kitchen, new family room, larger master suite with walk-in closet and bathroom. In addition we added a first floor powder room and a more open, airy stair to the second floor with ample closet and storage space.

The most challenging aspect of this project was designing new spaces for the way families live today while making peace with the existing house. Bungalowrooms are by nature modestly-sized and well-defined. Twenty-first century familiesare inclined towards open floor plans, eat-in kitchens, and large gathering spaces withvariably defined boundaries and functions. The goal in this home was to seamlessly meld the two design strategies together.  See the rest >>>
