An open floor plan works best for this family of five.
Like many families today, the owners of this suburban cape craved a multi-functional, spacious kitchen area that would be integrated into and flow well with the rest of their home. Like the owners of many traditional capes, what they had was a cramped, isolated kitchen—even despite earlier renovations and additions to the home.
While we could have torn down prior additions and started over, our commitment to resource efficiency led us to look for another way to meet our clients needs. Sure enough, we soon realized we could renovate rather than replace the earlier additions, allowing the family to make the most of the space they already had.
