This 1918 home is located in Druid Hills, an Atlanta registered historic district designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of New York's Central Park and the grounds of the Biltmore in Asheville. Expanded from the original 2300 SF to a total of 4700 SF, this house was renovated using many green and sustainable principals.
Much of the waste created during the project was recycled, most of the original building was retained and reused, and energy efficient and healthy home techniques were employed to ensure that the house uses a minimal amount of energy and provides a healthy enviroment for the occupants.
The original house had large formal rooms and one large bedroom in the front. The side bedrooms and kitchen were small, outdated and needed a major overhaul.
The front porch, living room, dining room, den , and front bedroom remained essentially the same. A stair hall was created to access the new 2nd floor, the corner bedroom was expanded to the rear and a new bathroom and closet addded. The kitchen was remodeled and expanded into the existing breakfast room and pantry and into the addition along the rear of the house.
The entirely new 2nd floor was created primarily within the existing expansive roof volume. Consisting of a master suite along with 2 additional bedroom suites and a laundry, this space fulfills the needs of a 21st century family and allowed us to expand this house to over twice the original size with minimal additional added volume.
