Katy Popple Design provided architectural design, finish selection, and fixture selection for a 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bathroom total gut renovation in Highland Park for K Bennett Development Group. The existing layout was composed of a series of closed off rooms, a disproportionately small kitchen, and had been renovated in the past to convert the second floor into a separate unit. We reworked the layout to restore the house to a single family home and added modern features such as an open concept floor plan; an 8' accordion glass door to a new deck; a first floor powder room; a master suite with a walk-in closet; and laundry on the second floor. Original aspects of the house were maintained where possible, including 10' ceiling heights, exposed brick fireplaces, and original stairs and railings. New finish material selections were made to emphasize the beautiful light that filters into the house throughout the day and new fixture selections were made to add a modern, graphic punch. The home was pre-sold during the framing stages and the homeowner was able to customize the kitchen cabinetry and material selections.
