Universal Appeal

Transforming a section of the house into a universally accessible suite for aging parents posed multifaceted challenges, requiring a delicate balance between interactive family spaces and the need for separation. Overcoming accessibility hurdles both indoors and outdoors was pivotal, demanding the creation of a fully accessible kitchen and complex elevator retrofit for the suite's second level. Creative spatial reconfigurations, such as a sloping pathway for wheeled access and a foyer dividing the in-law suite, utilized existing space efficiently. The addition of an elevator enabled the retention of privacy by allowing bedrooms to be kept on the upper level. Careful material selection and thoughtful finishing details seamlessly integrated the new suite without altering the original structure, featuring 2 new beautifully designed powder rooms, storage-savvy built-ins, and fully accessible bathrooms catering to every generation's needs. Enhanced connectivity between levels now fosters intergenerational family engagement during dining, movie nights, and bedtime routines. This meticulously renovated suite not only enhances family interactions across generations but also stands as a testament to the seamless fusion of style and functionality, adding immeasurable value to the family's daily life without compromising on elegance.

 

 

 

 

 

What People Are Saying

Lawrence Green

"I was impressed not only by Sarah's design ability, but also with her level of construction knowledge. I have heard that a lot of designers are good at making things pretty, but are not that great at understanding how things are actually built- Sarah is fantastic at both. I recommend them to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation."

Diane and Vince Grdina

"We had the pleasure of working with Sarah on the construction of our new home. We had a lot of fun working with them and found them always thoughtful, mindful, and professional. We would highly recommend their firm and would use them again without hesitation."

Pete Rackow

"We were immediately impressed with Sarah's ability to assess our needs and understand the type of home my wife and I wanted for us and our 3 boys. Her attention to detail is flawless and every inch of our fully renovated home is thoroughly thought through. I felt like they cared about our home as much as we the homeowners did."
