Washington Court East House
Sunnyside Gardens, NY
Program: Residential 1 Family Renovation
Area: 925 sf
Status: Completed 2016
The new owners of this single family house desired a more functional kitchen arrangement as well as a renovated bathroom. The kitchen now has a very sleek, modern design inserted into the historic house. The rear facade has been restored with a traditional six of six kitchen window and a new French sliding doors with mullions providing more light and visual access to the shared garden. The through wall AC units were removed and a new ductless mini split system installed. The renovated open living / dining / kitchen layout makes a very spacious ground floor plan. On the second floor, the doors were replaced, the closets reconfigured and the bathroom redesigned to include a custom medicine cabinet, stunning tile and modern fixtures. The house illustrates the ability to insert a modern program into a historic container while maintaining the design character and charm.
