This house was built to replace a very small ranch to demonstrate how we replace smaller homes with larger structures to add square footage while maintaining an appropriate scale of proportion. (
We added interest by tucking the kitchen behind the stairs, situating the dining area between the kitchen and the living room with French doors to the adjacent patio. The living room is designed with seating facing the fireplace to create a separate conversation area
This picture shows the living room and the fireplace from the kitchen vantage point.
We built a “natural patio” that can be accessed by either set of French doors.
