Transitional Renovation

Uniquely inspired melding of old and new, this residence dating from the late 1800s fuses historic charm with its owners’ far more contemporary sensibilities. An all-natural cedar and stucco addition features steel porch railings to announce the modern aesthetic within.

Morgante Wilson Architects kept the metal beams exposed and painted them a charcoal color. The perimeter counter tops are concrete to add an additional nod to the industrial feel. Storage is added underneath the island. Shelving was placed in front of the windows and hidden behind glass doors.
