The client wanted to modernize a formerly cramped and compartmentalized 1960s Brown and Kaufman home. Interior walls were first removed to open up the living space, bring in more natural light, and improve the overall flow. The kitchen has been reconfigured and opens directly into the great room while the master suite now has a large walk-in closet. Phase two added a new front addition with two kids’ bedrooms, a shared bath, and a dramatic entryway with a central interior glass atrium that creates a seamless connection with the rest of the house.
