Homeowners with a cramped, dated abode hired Broadhurst Architects to redesign the kitchen and add on a third floor to accommodate visiting family members. They also requested an exterior makeover so the home would blend in with its upscale, traditional neighborhood.
|The kitchen was too small and needed an overhaul. There was no side entry from the driveway, making it inconvenient to bring in groceries, etc.||An attractive addition enlarged the kitchen and created a side entry. It conveys the impression of an existing porch that was later enclosed—similar to other houses in the neighborhood.|
|The squat, gambrel roofline stuck out in a neighborhood of classic, colonial-style homes.||A third-floor addition replaced the dated roof. The new, gabled roofline harmonizes with its setting.|
|A nondescript front entry and dull brick façade meant the house had no street presence.||A front portico provides a commanding entry to the brick-and-clapboard home, which has been uniformly painted white with traditional dark-green shutters.|
