To add living space and a second bathroom to this historic bungalow in the Ravenna neighborhood, we dug out the basement, maintaining the house’s traditional relationship to its site. The stair was reworked to allow easier access to both the basement and the attic.
Spaces added in the basement include a media room, bathroom, laundry room, guest room, and plenty of storage. The finishes of the new spaces are period-appropriate to the upper floor.
