Gold Coast Tudor
This was a gut renovation of original Levitt 1920's Normandy Tudor home in the North Strathmore community on Long Island. The home was remodeled in a Transitional style, bridging the gap from Traditional to Contemporary. The goal of the owners was to renovate the bedrooms & kitchen, and freshen up the vintage, dark-paneled home that lacked sunlight and closet space. Our solution was to infuse sunlight by changing door locations and circulation patterns so that every point had a window to the outdoors. The functional and under-appreciated "Galley" kitchen was redone with a new slate floor. Custom designed flanking bookcases separate the dining and living rooms. The master bathroom was removed in favor of creating an open loft at the top of the stairs, drastically increasing the amount of natural light in the space. The common stair loft is an airy space that allows the bedrooms to be separated by more than simple narrow hallways The master bedroom became a serene space with cathedral tray ceilings and a French flair. On the exterior, a new semi-circular raised patio was respectfully added to enhance the existing pre-war brickwork.
