Fresh Foursquare

Updating a century-old house with modern amenities while respecting its history.

The goal of this whole-house renovation was to bring natural light to the original house.

An addition expands the footprint of the existing kitchen and also makes room for a breakfast nook.

The original house is a foursquare built in 1905 and is located in a historic Washington D.C. neighborhood.

The renovated kitchen has a new center island.

Vertical paneling found at the old house stair was introduced into the living room through stained vertical panel wainscot with new beams and millwork for added warmth.

The new porch strengthens the connection to the outdoors.

The updated entry is more welcoming.
