Vintage Charm

McNeill Baker Design Associates updates a 1941 Arlington abode for the 21st century

Project of the year
McNeill Baker Design Associates

When McNeill Baker was tapped to renovate a dated, Cape Cod-style brick home, project goals included improving traffic flow on the main level; enlarging the kitchen with laundry and pantry areas; designing a master suite with a large soaking tub; updating the existing hall bathroom; and adding a fourth bedroom on the upper level. A rec room replaced a storage area in the garage, while the remaining basement space was reconfigured as a fifth bedroom and another bath.

Zoning regulations limited the footprint of the addition, so the architects reorganized the existing space. They retained the home’s hallmark wainscoting, built-ins and tile work, ensuring that its vintage charm remained intact.

FACTS + STATS
McNeill Baker’s staff of eight to 10 maintains 10 to 15 projects a year in various phases of design and construction. Renovations, additions and new homes span $250,000 to more than $5 million.
