French Creole Renovation

This is a major renovation to a 1970’s French Colonial home in a well established neighborhood. In working with the homeowner’s renovation, the architect’s goal is that any additions and changes be seamless between the old and new spaces. The architect took a holistic approach in looking and both interior and exterior spaces as part of the overall renovation. One of the primary concerns for this renovation were to open up smaller existing rooms in the rear of the house to accommodate large family gatherings as well as smaller more intimate entertaining areas. Important to the homeowner was that the existing master suite be enlarged and that this space be connected both physically and visually to the outside gardens. At all times of the day, the homeowners can now enjoy the views to the pool and garden from within the new suite. The architect worked with the homeowners to enhance the existing Colonial exterior while updating the exterior color and enhancing the architectural details of the front entry, shutters, gas lanterns, and columns.
