Irvington Remodel and Addition

Located within the Irvington Historic District, the project required a separate design review and approval process due to the proposed exterior modifications to the home. A previous remodel left the home as a jumble of spaces with lots of cabinetry, but little thought to the actual function of the spaces. The 57 square foot addition at the rear of the home enabled a remarkable transformation of the kitchen, taking it from a crowded L-shaped kitchen with little workable counter space to a beautiful large kitchen conducive to cooking and entertaining. The new kitchen opens to the backyard through a new 4-panel sliding door, which provides ample daylighting and extends the kitchen to the outdoors. A new bench and storage adjacent to the 4-panel door function like a mud room. New windows over the sink balance the daylight in the space and provide views to the exterior. A large nebulous space between the living room and rear of the home was given order and purpose through the addition of a new hallway, built-ins, and storage space, bringing the home back to a more traditional and functional layout. Stained fir woodwork and cabinetry matches the original woodwork. Reproduction brass hardware and light fixtures throughout the space add to the timelessness of the home.
