Smith Residence

New Albany, Ohio - Residential - Single Family Home - Addition and Renovation

Located on a large lot in a suburban neighborhood, this existing two story house stood occupied but hidden for years as the houses grew around it. Discovered by a young couple with a growing family, we worked to develop a renovation and expansion strategy that would allow the updates they needed while honoring their time and budget constraints. After designing an update/expansion of the main living areas, we presented the client with a plan for succeeding renovations that could be completed over the following years, on their timeframe. By taking the long-term view, our team designed a cost-effective solution that would the clients to adapt their house through future generations.

Dan really took the time to explore a lot of different options and possibilities with us. He did an incredible job taking fragmented pieces of what we wanted to achieve and putting them into a layout that captured it all. The layout and flow of the house is open and totally what we had envisioned. We love our home now!
