Hyde Park Kitchen Renovation

This Hyde Park Tudor residence built in 1936 has uncharacteristically more French than English inflections. It is finely detailed with cut stone, a sculpted tower, terra cotta tile roof and roof finials. The new owners and designers reviewed all proposals and selections to ensure the renovation would be sensitive to the home’s character, and that the materials employed would be timeless. Particular attention was given to accommodating a contemporary lifestyle within the context of the formal framework.
To accomplish these goals the existing kitchen, being modest in size, was linked more directly to the
adjacent breakfast and dining rooms. Window openings were enlarged to provide additional light and
views, while new door openings were created to allow alternative movement patterns consistent with
the biaxial kitchen plan. Additionally, an exterior porch and storage room were incorporated into the renovation scheme, becoming a mudroom, essential for two young children and a puppy. Together,
these subtle alterations help to visually expand the kitchen footprint while restoring its rightful formal
and historical nature.
