Tudor addition/alteration, Rye, NY

Project location: Rye, N.Y.
Project type: Addition/Alteration
Completion date: 2010
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.

The goal of this project was to create an addition to double the size of the house while honoring the Tudor style house built in the 1920′s….creating an addition in scale with the house and to look like it had always been there. The existing house was small (being roughly 1500 SF), inadequate for a family with 3 small children. Most of the existing spaces were gutted during the remodel, allowing for reconfiguration of the spaces.

The addition created a large family room and an office on the first floor, with the existing living room being converted to a dining room. A large kitchen was designed within the rear half of the existing house. The second floor of the addition consists of a master bedroom suite, with the existing bedrooms being slightly altered and remodeled.
