Gothic Revived

Designed by Bryan Anderson

with Courtney Kruntorad

The homeowners enjoyed the grandeur and urban location of this Gothic Revival for nearly a decade before deciding to take on the challenge of bringing light, view and improved function to a kitchen that 19th century formality isolated from the rest of the house. Most dramatic was the removal of a butlery to create fluid circulation through the entire main level and a direct view to the garden. New window and door portals highlight the thickness of solid brick walls and provide outdoor access via an elevated breakfast area. The team achieved this with a modern aesthetic, while adhering to preservation guidelines that required punched openings and traditional materials.
