Ballard Kitchen Addition

The client's goal in this addition to a 1920s Tudor style bungalow was simple: make it look like it was always there. We studied the exterior form and materials of the house carefully, and came up with an additional volume that we believed the original designer might have proposed. On the interior, a more modern palette of black, white, and gray flooded with natural light offers a break from the typical small rooms of the period.
