BLBennArchitects Home Resume Services Process Portfolio
An existing house sat on a spectacular 100 acre property with ponds and 50 mile views on a clear day. Our client carefully evaluated whether to tear down or renovate the poorly constructed house. Although the plan did not meet their needs, they decided to extensively renovate, add needed space, and preserve some features such as a large stone fireplace, old panel doors, and wood details.

Our clients needed a house that would be comfortable for two professionals every day, but which also would permit privacy and graciousness for weekend guests and for entertaining. A kitchen designed carefully for gourmet food preparation, was a must. Their propensity was for a house on one floor, traditional design, the reuse of old materials, and hand made cabinetry.
