The existing 1890s farmhouse was used as the design inspiration for the two additional structures, which included a living room and master suite, with fluid connections to the outside patio. The living room addition took the form of a barn with the master suite mimicking the form, style and detail of the existing 1890 structure. Enclosed glass “breezeways” were used to connect the different buildings with the same patio stone continuing throughout the space to connect the inside space with the outside. The construction of a two story garage with artist’s studio was also incorporated onto the site.

Montague Terrace Apartment
Date: 2011-13 Location: Brooklyn, NY
Completed while working as a Senior Associate at Ben Herzog Architect, PC www.herzogarch.com Interior Designer: Kiki Dennis Interiors Photographer: Brett Beyer
The views from this Brooklyn Heights coop apartment were incredible to work with and the owner couldn't pass up the opportunity to purchase it, even with significant amount of work it would need. The building is located in a designated Landmarks district requiring the Landmark Preservation Commission approval for the proposed new windows and HVAC scope. Incorporating air conditioning into the apartment without an exterior space was the major challenge to tackle.

This Brooklyn townhouse involved converting the existing 3 family home to a single family residence. A new bulkhead was added to the restructured roof providing extra outdoor space for the client. New steel was installed at the first floor rear masonry wall to allow for the new window openings at the first floor and cellar levels.

This home in Lancaster started out as the horse stables for the main house on the property before it was subdivided in the early to mid 1900s. The stables were converted into a family residence and continued to expand in footprint over the following decades. The original scope of the project was to consist of mainly a kitchen addition. Upon walking through the house, it became clear that a reorganization of the interior space needed to be addressed to help provide a more cohesive flow between the existing space and the proposed addition. To achieve this, the stairs to the upper floor were relocated allowing for a more open floor plan at the first floor. With existing ceilings that were lower than eight feet, the main level of the house struggled to get sufficient light into the middle of the house. The dining room and kitchen addition in the rear facade, overlooking the Calistoga River, provided the opportunity to bring in more light throughout. The exterior of the addition blended in stylistically with the existing stable wings while the interior was updated to function specifically to the owner’s needs.

Design Firm: West Spring Studio Location: Los Angeles, CA
We are currently working on this lovely 1920s English Tutor house in Los Feliz. The owner is looking towards the future and decided to renovate with the idea of this being the last renovation that would be needed. The scope includes adding an elevator to make all floors accessible, renovating the master bath to be spacious and more up to date, and updating the existing kitchen. A new roof with solar panels and exterior painting will follow.
