We completely remodeled this two-unit Victorian in a hybrid of traditional and modern styles. To fulfill the owner’s unique vision of a co-housing community for the socially minded, we expanded the bottom unit into a five-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment with a common area that opens into the backyard.
For the top unit, we modernized the space while keeping some of the original detailing, such as wainscoting and crown molding. What was once an afterthought of a space, a laundry room, was transformed into a modern, spacious deck that will be covered in vines for privacy. A bold color scheme echoes the owner's progressive style.
