Architect: Albert Garcia
Architect Firm: KITE Architects, Inc.
Location: Providence, RI
Project Type: Remodel
Located in the heart of College Hill, this residential renovation project is surrounded by historic residences, as well as Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design. Our design focus was to visually and spatially transform the formerly reclusive building and landscape, into a modern, progressive residence with new meaningful connections to its vibrant center of residential and student activity. Structural modifications to existing dormers and new windows bring light and views deep into the interiors of the house. Interior layout and entrances were completely redefined to improve the natural flow between living spaces and connections to the outdoors, while at the same time maintaining privacy for the owners in this urban setting.
Judges' comments: “The remodel takes a tired and dated existing home and transforms it into an edgy contemporary winner. The open ceiling and two dramatic window walls allows light to cascade into the home as it plays off the white walls and wood floors creating a museum like quality to the space.”
