UPDATING THE TRADITIONAL HOME

Lauren Langford - Thursday, December 17, 2015

Situated on the intracoastal waterway, the owners of this 4,000 sq ft home were looking to update their home from traditional to modern.  Group 3 took on this whole house renovation with simple lines, upgraded materials and an open concept floor plan.

The kitchen was in the front of the house and it was separated from the living space.  Group 3 decided to turn the original kitchen into a study and the kitchen was moved and now overlooked the main living space while taking full advantage of the water view. The existing living room was sunken in and in order to make the connection Group 3 designed a lower breakfast bar with an inset floating glass and rail.  Barstools were later added to the bar. Typically, a bar is raised but because the room was lower this concept worked.


The master bath was very dated and traditional. The space itself was not changed around much. Recessed bowls replaced inset bowls. Limestone floor replaced marble floor. The original dark green counters were replaced with gray absolute black and maple cabinets. 

A typical traditional staircase was updated by maple peer and custom newel posts.
