This 1920's vintage home has been in the Way Family for most of its history. Our client, John Way, had inherited it from his parents, and asked Stokes Architecture to remake the house for a modern lifestyle. The house had never been substantially renovated, and still had a small kitchen for service staff, and vintage mechanical systems. The challenge was to create a new open kitchen, master bedroom suite, and add air-conditioning and other modern infrastructure, while restoring the original interior and exterior. The solution was to rebuild a porch on the side of the house into a family room, and add a matching addition to create an informal eat-in kitchen. A master bedroom was created out of two small bedrooms.
