Project Type

Five Units


8,400 sf.



A complete gut renovation with additions to a dilapidated building long used as a nursing home. The project converted the building into a fine residence with three rental units on the upper floors. The majority of the top floor was converted into a soaring home-office filled with new cathedral spaces and a wide array of windows. The plan incorporated many multi-story and complex spatial arrangements while maintaining a very simple organization and feel to the common areas. The house incorporated and salvaged architectural details while complementing them with open, flowing spaces.
