Extensive review and collaboration with the Heritage Preservation Commission was required to renovate this historic property located within Excelsior’s downtown district. The goal was to breathe life back into the property and create a space that meets the current needs of three generations of the owner’s family, while providing a home that can evolve with the client far into the future.
The home’s design honors the legacy of the property, marrying the front façade with a beautiful, modern, contextually sensitive remodel of the back elevation.
