Minor Remodel: Laurelhurst Home
This virtual model is an example of a minor remodel to an existing home. We added a new kitchen to this Tudor Revival house. We also enlarged the existing dining room and improved the flow between the living room and the rest of the main floor.
The viewer approaches the house from the street level below. The entry is located in the inside corner of the main floor off the front deck. By reconfiguring the main entrance, we created an entry hall that provides a dramatic sense of arrival. As the viewer enters the house the new dining room and kitchen are located to the viewer’s right; the living room is located to the left. The kitchen has been relocated to a new addition to the house. The dining room is now in the space formerly occupied by the kitchen and dining room. There is also a new pantry to the left of the kitchen.
The living room is located on the west side of the house facing the street. Before the remodel the living room was isolated from the rest of the main floor. By enlarging the doorway to the living room, we created a connection to the new kitchen and dining room.
