Wellesley Tudor

It’s a 1928 Tudor home that has tons of vintage charm.  The client is looking for an expanded Kitchen with Pantry, dedicated Mudroom, and additional Master Bedroom with bathroom.  As well as updates throughout the home. They wanted something bright and inviting with a contemporary vintage vibe.

The main objective for this 650 SF addition, was to expand the home with an addition that is homogeneous.  The beloved style shall remain as true to form as possible with a seamless extension to accommodate additional program needs. The objective was to preserve as much of the existing materials removed during demolition. For the front facade, we mixed the salvaged brick from the demolition with new bricks having the same character. Allowing the addition to seamlessly ties into the existing home. We applied the same approach for the slate roof which also ties seamlessly with the existing.

Careful consideration is paid to scale and materials; dormers mimic and complement the existing house and provide opportunities for second floor living under the eaves. 

The goal was to create rooms that feel spacious and livable yet in scale with the existing rooms.   The addition maximizes the use of space and takes into consideration carefully designed details.
