HOMES | Historic Renovation / Restoration


Photograph by Beth Singer

1st - CBI DESIGN PROFESSIONALS

Salvaging many of the original 1930s home’s features and components in this historic renovation and addition project required careful analysis and architectural expertise right through the finishing details. Of note: Paint colors were chosen carefully to brighten the interior while still maintaining the original historic feel. All in all, the high life was reclaimed
in this historic renovation.

HOMES | Small-space Remodel, Less Than 1,000 Square Feet

1st - TUTTO INTERIORS

The kitchen in this home was pretty much a total tear-down — the only thing not taken out was the floor. Formerly featuring darker walls and creamy, framed glazed cabinets and a limestone backsplash, it now has a fresh look. The fireplace is double-sided, which provides plenty of space for the built-in television and the  niche above it. A crystal chandelier and antique leaded-glass wine bar cabinets add vintage appeal.

This home was transformed from a modest lakefront dwelling into a sleek and modern oasis with an “industrial warehouse” theme. Extra special: The 6-inch plank flooring, exposed timber beams, contemporary cabinetry incorporating stainless steel hardware, an open-air staircase with metal accents and cables, and a fireplace with a custom, hand-forged metal mantel and supporting legs

An outdated 1950s production ranch-style home was completely transformed into a classic, traditional Shingle-style home for this project, which involved an upper-level addition and enlarging the main-level kitchen, sunroom, and garage spaces. A new mud hall with a side-entry porch was added and the entire first floor was extensively renovated.

HOMES | Vacation Home in Michigan

 DESIGNER’S CHALLENGE -  The original lakefront cottage had a series of unfortunate additions and renovations over the years.

1st - ANGELINI & ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS

This lakefront cottage from the 1920s received symmetrical wings, and a master suite addition to the west with a new kitchen and mudroom/side entry to the east. A new garage with an art studio above and screen porch behind is connected to the east side of the house. The original gable roof line continues through the additions to both sides, as well as the garage.

HOMES | Vacation Home Outside Michigan

1st - AZD ARCHITECTS

This Florida vacation home, on a pie-shaped lot on the Florida Intracoastal waterway, has a very narrow roadside presence, so designing a lot of curb appeal was challenging. The solution? Enhance the aesthetic of the garage by using glass garage doors (although at the time, glass garages were not hurricane-approved). They were eventually approved by the building department and the home is one of the first in Fort Lauderdale to implement glass garage doors.

1st - MOCERI CUSTOM HOMES, WITH DOMINICK TRINGALI ARCHITECTS

The St. James can be built out to include more than 5,000 square feet on the first two levels. The three- or four-car garage opens to an exceptionally large mud room complete with a family drop zone, L-shape laundry room, and more. The two-story entry foyer frames the formal living and dining rooms, along with a uniquely designed guest closet and powder room. And there’s so much more.

HOMES | Contemporary Architecture Under 4,000 Square Feet

1st - AZD ARCHITECTS

This house, located in downtown Birmingham, was a past award-winning home, but the new buyers wanted an updated, softer look with a warmer feeling. The new facade added a natural stone to the smooth block, as well as wood features with a unique lap and reveal detail. Overall, the shapes, proportions, and finish materials were all combined seamlessly while working with the existing materials and lines.

1st - J. VISSER DESIGN

Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, this modern home is on 18 acres that are environmentally protected because of the designated critical dunes, extremely steep slopes, and wetlands. The main house and two guest pods are situated on a razorback dune that is 20 feet deep with 350 feet of lake frontage. A deck extends along the entire length, unifying the three structures with cable railing to provide for unobstructed views.

HOMES | Traditional Architecture Under 4,000 Feet

1st - VISBEEN ARCHITECTS

Perfectly at home along the Carolina shores, "Laurel" was built using native materials and was designed to let the ocean breezes in. Deep covered decks and a screened-in porch allow for easy transitions between indoor and outdoor living. As this home is located in a hot southern climate, the client wanted to capture cross-breezes and have a lot of private and/or covered outdoor entertainment spaces.

This French country estate was designed to suit the homeowners’ penchant for the French countryside (there’s even French lavender surrounding the motor court!). Talk about attention to detail — nearly two dozen stucco colors were tested before the final color was chosen. The enchanting, iconic tower contains a main-floor dining room wine cellar as well as a second-level toy room.

HOMES | Overall Home

DESIGNER’S VISION - This home was designed to seamlessly flow within the rolling terrain of a private, four-acre parcel.


Photograph by John Carlson

1st - AZD ARCHITECTS, WITH EUROTECH HOMES

The house consists of three main pods connected by glass and unified by a serpentine corridor that extends from one end of the residence to the other. One pod has a two-level, six-car garage, while the middle pod is the main living area and the third pod contains five bedroom suites. A two-story, all-glass foyer/atrium connects the bedroom and living pods, providing an unobstructed view of the property and nearby woods.
