The historic carriage house located on the quiet street of Verandah Place in Carrol Gardens, dates back to the late 1800's. Over the course of time, many of its original details have been stripped over the multiple unsympathetic renovations, leaving only the facade as the original framework. Our clients, a young family of five, asked us to create a sense of closeness and intimacy throughout the home, despite the layout being spread over four levels. We achieved this by opening up windows to maximize the daylight and by giving special to the material palette. The soft white walls & oak wood used for floors, doors, and cabinetry, create a flow tieing several elements together throughout the house. The new stairwell, simple in its design, is a vessel of light and a spine to the new home.
