Whitefish Bay Transitional

A previous remodel of this beautiful Tudor home had made a mess of several spaces. The kitchen and entry areas were cramped and aesthet­ically out of place with the home. This left spaces feeling out of place. Additionally, the original garage had been removed years earlier and instead, a long and narrow tandem garage had been installed in its place. Overall, this back corner of the home was cramped, cluttered, unattractive, and inefficient.

Our clients wanted a new design to incorporate a transi­tional style; one that brings charac­ter­istics from the original architecture and combine it with a modern and bright feel. The new design and layout eliminated the garage and utilized some square footage from that area to increase the kitchen and back entry space. A new 2 car brick garage was built, set back from the home. The allowed for a new back entry that features built in lockers, storage, and plenty of space for the family, which includes four children and two dogs.

The new kitchen has a large island and functional work areas, allowing for easy access to cook, clean, up, or simply enjoy time together. The family room was also improved, with walnut wrapped beams and new cabinetry to compliment the adjacent kitchen and mudroom spaces.
