Midtown Craftsman

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

Located on one of Atlanta’s busiest streets, this design addressed the poor siting of the original home by creating a split level entry in the rear reconnecting the house to its yard. The new second floor added a modern master suite and large utility room to the house, as well as a loft library.

The new rear entry floods the kitchen with morning light and a former sleeping porch was transformed into a cozy dining nook. The large front porch was subdivided to provide a foyer that helped cut down on noise in the front of the home. A very special feature is the third level crows nest accessed via ladder, with dramatic views of midtown.
