Hickory Modern Victorian

Currently in design, this 1908 Victorian in Maplewood, New Jersey will undergo a complete renovation. The house has firm bones and all of its original oak wood detailing through out. The primary goal of the renovation is to transform the house into a comfortable home that will meet the needs of our client’s family of four.

While respecting the original details of the home we are inserting modern elements that play well off of one another. The first floor rooms will be made more open to each other, allowing a greater a connection between the kitchen, dining, living room and outdoor spaces.  On the second floor we are creating a master suite for which we are reconfiguring one of the smaller bedrooms as a large walk-in closet/dressing room.  A second bathroom is being added in the front of the house for two young children.

This is a collaboration with a client who has a modern sensibility and an interest in creating a sense of surprise in the final aesthetic. As a team with our resourceful contractor, we are working to concurrently design and build the project which allows for a progressive process.
