While the exterior was restored to capture the original cottage’s historic status, the interior was reinvented to provide a serene environment that celebrates the home’s original two-room format while accentuating the transition into the spacious addition through a compressed space occupied by the kitchen and counteracted by a linear skylight.
The simple materials palette descends into the master suite providing warm coziness while frosted glass partitions and simple materials add a contrasting freshness.
The house is a demonstration that historicism can be maintained while being both completely reinvented and reinforced by other renovations.
