The project at 1955 Madison Road began as a kitchen renovation, and then grew to include an addition and new terrace atop the existing garage. The existing structure ignored views to the south and had an isolated family room (created by the enclosure of a former porch). By removing the existing deck we were able to extend the kitchen spatially linking the family room and terrace while also creating a new breakfast area. Within this new space, a wall of glass overlooks the owner’s property and reconnects the home to its site.
