At the juncture where a sleek and austere 1969 kitchen-and-family-room addition met the original 1920s colonial revival house, two 30-inch wide pinch points clogged circulation and made an emphatic seperation between new and old spaces.  


This project intervenes to open-up that clog. The redesigned kitchen is now the heart and hub of the home. Floating soffits reach out and stitch new spaces to old.

We worked closely with the craftspeople at Olive Square Kitchens to develop the integrated door and drawer pulls.


Echoing shingle-courses on the exterior of the original house, blue clapboards wrap two sides of the island.
