The Beauregard House

July 27, 2017. By Ryan. 0 comment(s).

This house has seen many lives since it was originally constructed around 1907-- from guest house, to apartment building, to bed and breakfast, and back to personal home. We are putting the finishing touches on it now. 

We reused the existing pine throughout the house-- here it is mixed with twinwall polycarbonate to serve as an entry wall which distorts light and vision to the private stair beyond.

We complemented the old wood with whitewash and graywashed pine

 

Re-making within the historical

July 16, 2017. By Ryan. 0 comment(s).

After 4 years of opening and rediscovering this home within the historic King William neighborhood, construction is almost complete.

As we opened up walls and removed previously remodeled finishes, we understood more clearly how many times the house has been operated on over its history. Our goal was to reveal and reuse original materials and make the house functional again for contemporary living. 

 

We redesigned a previous addition, which had been constructed poorly and made to mimic the original house, to stand apart but complement the original home. The addition now is home to an open master bathroom, porch, and dining area.
