Project vision or goals

The Westwood bungalow underwent a transformation, blending traditional elements with modern touches and new materials. The home expanded from 1,600 to 5,300 square feet, featuring unique additions. The living room and kitchen showcase 12ft ceilings, accompanied by a delightful breakfast nook with windows on three sides. A courtyard is revealed through 10ft steel doors at the center of the home. Additionally, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms were incorporated, along with a laundry room on the main level that includes a dog door, crates, and a custom cat condo.

Project challenges
  Preserving the character of the neighborhood and surrounding homes posed challenges for this project. Building on a lot that previously accommodated a 1,600 sq ft home is typically challenging. However, with the thoughtful plans from Paul at Urban Prairie Architecture, we overcame these obstacles and created a stunning home that seamlessly blends with the neighborhood. We successfully preserved most of the trees in the front and backyard, ensuring the beloved character of the Westwood area remains intact.
Project solutions
  To address the project challenges, we devised excellent plans, implemented tree protection measures, and crafted a stunning interior design that honors the traditional lines of the original home. Incorporating elements such as traditional library moulding, inset cabinetry, and wallpaper, we added unique features and design details. It was a delightful experience to work on a home in this exceptional neighborhood.
