Family Room Completes a Small House

Family Room Completes a Small House

My client needed a comfortable place to congregate with friends and family — a place connected to her kitchen and the back yard. We made it happen with this 20 ft by 16 ft sunroom connected to the original home through a previously enclosed back porch.

A Small Yard Now Big on Entertaining

My client lamented that they rarely ventured in to the yard and only occasionally ate on the deck.   With judicial use of existing elements and few bold strokes, they now have spaces that they use and entertain in almost daily.

Making Room for Baby

My clients live in a 1930’s brick story and a-half cottage. The 2 bedrooms upstairs and small compartmentalized rooms on the first floor just weren’t working once they added their second child.

We opened up this 1930’s brick semi-detached home in Washington, DC. We turned the small cramped rooms into a light-filled, open-plan space that still retains intimacy and original details.

Bath Expansion In An Old House

Bath Expansion In An Old House

This was an old 5ft x 7ft 1930’s bath. A previous remodel had enclosed an old sleeping porch. For this remodel, we changed the old window into a passageway and expanded the bath to include a large vanity, storage, and European-style wet room containing a shower and soaking tub.
