How We Started
The first time that we worked with Katz Novoa Architects & Planners we had small children and needed more space in our home in Summit. Ileana and Jon listened attentively to our wishes and needs and transformed our small ranch into a modern, functional, bright, living space, where our children could play and grow and where we could entertain both in and out doors.
Four years after working with us on an extensive renovation of their home, the Clients called us to discuss a new project: a house on a 24 acre plot of land two miles away.
The Clients commissioned us to design an Indoor Swimming Pool addition for their home after seeing one of projects featured in a special issue magazine entitled “Before and After.” Their Expanded Ranch style home sits on a beautiful two-acre lot overlooking the Long Island Sound, in Rye, New York. Both Clients, health-conscious, avid year-round swimmers, were beginning to spend more time at their house in the country than in their Park Avenue apartment; they wanted the convenience of a vigorous morning swim without having to travel to the local swimming facility.
