Our clients loved the character of their 1941 Tudor Revival home in Hilltop, Denver but wanted it to reflect their California-casual style and love of the coast. Dated materials felt out of place with the house’s history and architectural style.
Most of all, the funky layout of the previously remodeled kitchen didn’t support the large, community gatherings our clients loved to host. An adjacent room felt like wasted space, and seemed to collect furniture rather than memories.
With function a top priority for this busy family, we reworked the layout of the kitchen, breakfast nook, and hearth room so that our clients could still host and chat with guests while putting the finishing touches on a dish, and meal prep while keeping an eye on kids art projects.
Opening up a few choice walls brought natural light into a long, dark hallway, made room for a full coffee & wine bar, and allowed for maximum seating to gather round.
Throughout the home, intentionality and sustainability informed every choice – from Tudor-inspired millwork in the refreshed dining room to the hand-painted tile behind the range – and salvaging original light fixtures to be used on another project down the street.
