The last few details, odds and ends and furniture deliveries are taking place in this Eastside co-op apartment. We helped the clients replace the kitchen cabinets, counters, appliances, flooring and other finishes and add a very usable ‘butler’s pantry’ of stock-sized cabinetry off of the kitchen. Below are ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos:

In the 1980s a family room was added to the back of this historical Connecticut house. The addition has a rather low ceiling and a different floor height from the original house. As this is the space where the family will likely be spending most of their time, we have proposed making this a double height space as part of an addition and renovation. The two different floor heights are mediated by a generous open stair which helps to join the old and new portions of the house in a more seamless transition.

We are in the early stages of planning a connection between two apartments on two separate floors with a staircase that also acts as a room divider and storage unit.
