Our projects range in size, budget, and scale from whole houses to screened porches, tiny bathrooms to newly constructed carriage houses. The focus throughout is compatibility with the original character of the existing structure, making sure that the old and new speak a common language.
Kitchen and Master Expansion in Duke Park
A 1970s enclosed porch off the rear of this little house was dingy, drafty, and a junk pile. Capturing that space into the kitchen and master made both rooms open and bright.
Forest Hills Kitchen + Screened Porch
The longtime owners of this sweet Tudor Revival had struggled with the original kitchen for decades. Opening it up to the backyard and enlarging it by just a few feet created a light, bright space to enjoy.
Sometimes it takes a whole new view to solve the problem – like the dark, tucked away kitchen in this 1950s home. Relocating it to the end of the long living/dining space and repurposing the kitchen into a mudroom made all the difference.
Duke Forest Ranch
A little bit staid ranch, a little bit mid-century modern, this architect-designed home from 1956 needed a little push towards the modern. We designed a screened porch with all the right details and improved the back facade.
Monmouth Screened Porch
The owners of this sweet bungalow wanted a porch added off of their existing laundry and kitchen, with space for hanging out, brewing beer, and a fantastic hanging sleeping couch. Matching porch details from the front of the house gave it a lot of character.
This amazing house, originally designed by an architect as his family home in the 1920s, has been updated for a writer with bookcases in every room, quirky light fixtures, and vibrant colors.
Bassett House Garage
Set behind the remarkable Bassett House, this carriage house provides a carport, garage, and office space for the homeowners. Details like the two-over-two windows and salvaged garage door make it compliment the original landmark home.
Club Blvd Master Bath
A private bathroom and more closet space were on the list for this master bedroom. Additional light and some fun reused pieces make it special.
Tucked away in Old North Durham, this family needed a separate office that could double as a guest space and enhance the backyard. Taking cues from the original house, this little cottage could be an accessory dwelling in the future, but now provides the owner his Fortress of Solitude.
