Marketed as a teardown, the clients of this 1920s Tudor were dedicated to restoring the home back to its prior glory. While an attempt was made to renovate the original kitchen decades ago, local firm CBI Design Professionals says “it was woefully inadequate for today’s lifestyles.”
The architect created a new kitchen space toward the rear of the home. This allowed for high ceilings, cross beams, and north-facing roof glazing for more light.
The owner wanted to include a pop of color in the space that tied in with the traditional features. Custom blue cabinets with classic detailing were designed along with a built-in bench. Other unique adds include an island top that was salvaged from a tree removed during renovations; a wood floor with a custom pattern; and historically accurate lighting.
