Creating an Open Flow in a Traditional Home.
Like many historical homes in Newburyport they are filled with beautiful details and old world charm. However a tight and box-like layout is often not conducive to modern family living. This home required a custom remodel to complement the homes original structure.
In order to achieve this, we built a custom archway to connect the two rooms. The archway now creates continuity of the once cramped living rooms. By removing this wall family members can enjoy this space together. This family room can now have dual purposes for entertaining, studying, or having a casual meal.
Adding additional windows in the dining area allow natural light to spill into the kitchen making it feel even more open and light. They also allow this room to be more energy efficient while appreciating the character of the home.
