Riverdale Residence

The clients of this single-family house wished to make some improvements to their home that was both modern and affordable. Through frequent dialogue and collaboration with the clients, a design goal was reached, a direction was determined, and various finishes, products, and options were chosen. A full set of well documented drawings were made and provided to the general contractor and municipality for permits.

The main living space was opened up and walls were removed to create a better flow between the living room, dining room, and kitchen and a more modern loft-like feeling. Walls surrounding the front entrance remained to maintain the foyer.

A wall that had once separated the kitchen from dining is now opened up transmitting light throughout the space and providing an opportunity for bar seating at the counter.
Axonometric – items removed from the existing home are highlighted in red.

The kitchen was completely rehabbed with removal of unnecessary bulkheads, new cabinets, granite countertops, undermount stainless steel sink, new stainless steel appliances, and new windows. A laundry room oddly located in the breakfast nook area was relocated to the basement and walls removed to open up the space along with new patio doors to add much needed light.

Full height cabinetry provide much needed storage space.
New windows flank new french doors where once stood a laundry closet in this bright and functional breakfast nook.

In the master bedroom a dysfunctional his and hers closet layout separated by a niche wall was demolished and the full width of the room was utilized to create an efficient and organized built-in closet.

Wall to wall cabinets make this bedroom clean, tranquil and efficiently functional.

Landscape design services was also provided with the design of a new deck space and plantings.
