Whole House Transformation and Expansion 1 Livingston, NJ

3 May, 2018

NAME: Private Residence
PROJECT TYPE: Alterations and Additions
LOCATION: Livingston, New Jersey
SIZE: SF Existing / SF New
SERVICES: Programming and Architecture


The Clients had four goals for their project: A better bedroom arrangement for their four children, improved utility at the side entrance, enhanced use of the backyard, and the exterior transformation of their Ranch style home. Our approach to accomplishing their objectives was four-pronged:

First, we removed the existing partial second floor and added two new wings connected via a Balcony with two Bedrooms, a Study and Bathroom on the left side for the boys, and two Bedrooms with Jack-‘N-Jill Bathroom on the right for the Girls.

Second, we reconfigured the side entrance into an efficient and spacious Laundry Room, a Mud Room with cubbies and storage, and a Powder Room. In addition, we created a recessed banquette in the Breakfast Nook which enhanced the flow in the Kitchen by eliminating the congestion that previously existed.
Third, we expanded the deck to create a larger area for the family to hang out and enjoy the beautiful backyard.
Finally, we removed certain exterior elements, added architectural details, replaced all the windows, and changed the exterior materials to bring about the home’s stunning transformation from plain Jane to our Clients’ dream home.
