Colonial Court North House
Sunnyside Gardens, NY
Program: Residential Renovation
Status: Construction 2023
Located at the northern end of the earliest block built in Sunnyside Gardens, Colonial Court (1924), this house, once renovated, will have a spacious open kitchen / dining area and refurbished second floor bathroom. The new kitchen layout will involve removing a partition and moving the rear yard entry from the existing compartmental kitchen to the dining room. The kitchen sink will now be located under a new pair of windows with a generous view to the rear garden. A peninsula will provide ample counter space for food preparation and open interaction with the dining room. The new sliding French doors will lead to a metal deck, topped with Ipe wood tiles, to enjoy for barbecues and a new stair to access the yard. Previously, Heim Architect guided the restoration of the front porch and facade for this house. The impact to the streetscape is positive and engaging.
