This transformed home, a craftmans full house renovation, started as a dated 1950's home without much improvement and ended in this current transitional form. We added eight feet to the Kitchen and a partial second floor Bathroom Addition. We removed multiple structural walls and reoriented the bedrooms on the Second Floor.

Montclair, New Jersey Substantial Renovation and Addition, 2018
Located in Montclair, coined Manhattan’s sixth borough, is a commuter town with progressive ideals. This modern renovation and addition to a 1960’s split level home is a statement of architecture consistent with the modern undertone to the city’s new development. A recessed minimal entry, through a six-foot pivot door, leads you to a light filled open plan Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room marked abstract compositions of wall and window. The indoors are extended to the outdoor by way of a 13 foot sliding Nana wall. Minimalistically appointed, natural light is the main focus of this renovation.
Our client valued the notion of a fresh home that with statement architecture. Zoning regulations presented an additional layer of complexity. Split level homes are typically the hardest to work one, we were able make several large modifications such as a widened stair, alignments between floors and a lofted 2 story Living Room tie the new to old.
