Michael Huller Architects
This collaboration began with the homeowner wishing to achieve several items on the first floor of their home. They desired a new larger kitchen that would incorporate a large island, spacious counters and a lot of light. The windows in the kitchen were located to allow a nicer , more inclusive, view and capture more light. The program also included a new family room that would incorporate a Murhpy Bed for their house guests. The Murphy bed was built into a furniture piece that included two pull out night tables to be open when the bed was in use, a clothes closet, bookshelves and storage. The new powder room was designed to have a shower for guest staying in the family room. We used the back wall of the shower as a design element.
In the living room, the existing fireplace wall was an element that was very noticeable when entering the house. This design creates a new level of elegance and character to the first floor living areas as well as a ones first impression when entering the house. We also took a very long and narrow enclosed porch area and created a new mud room, laundry room and home office. It was a goal to develop a design that would greatly enhance the very plain and characterless rear of the house. This was achieved by the careful design of the massing and proportions along with the way materials where incorporated.
