Borenstein-Kalinowski Residence

This large split-level home had poor access to the backyard, and was a bit dark (with no windows on the side walls). The owner wanted a sun room, a place of her own to read, enjoy the outside, connect to the yard and grow flowers. This could be completed in a fairly modest way. We added a 12x12 sun room off the end of the dining room, down 3 steps, and connected the new sunny space to a large deck.

The client also wanted to increase the open feel of the home by opening the space between the kitchen and dining room. The dining room ceiling was raised, and an arched pass-thru to the kitchen was added. An additional arched doorway to the sun room mirrored the curved top of the windows and the pass-thru. New lighting and colors serve soften the entire space.

The bonus: the new deck also gives them a place to enjoy the expansive backyard, and a stage for the owner to play his bluegrass banjo with friends.
