Sunnyside 70s House

Sunnyside Gardens, NY

Program: Residential Renovation
Area: 1765sf
Status: Design 2018

The new owners of this unique Sunnyside house have a great respect for the neighborhood as well as the history of the house.  Located adjacent to the old coal alley, this house absorbed that space gaining 4.5′ of width as compared to a typical one family in the neighborhood.  Additionally, the house has been extensively renovated in the 1970’s to include an open ground floor plan, dramatic large sliding windows and rear door as well as linear skylight.  The house definitely has the feel of the era overlaid onto the 1920s house.  The design challenge will be to upgrade the kitchen and bathroom while commenting on the 70s period with a contemporary aesthetic as well.
