house in fonthill

 

this house located on a typical small town street was thoughtfully redesigned for a relocated "big-city" couple and their young family. the once dark, stuffy and compartmentalized interiors were stripped to their bones and opened up providing bright, flowing spaces centered around an existing small exterior courtyard. updated exterior finishes and a re-landscaped multi-level rear yard helped bring a new sense of intimacy for quiet family gatherings.
