Tutor Cottage Renovations and Alterations to First FL, South Orange, New Jersey

Repeat clients called upon Clawson Architects to tackle “Phase 2” of their home; to update the kitchen and the desire for more living space all within a budget. By re-envisioning the way one enters this charming cottage, we were able to take back valuable interior space.
The new front door entryway now organizes the space in a way that is much more efficient. The living room is now a utilized spacious room no longer a cut through to get to other areas of the home. The homeowners are amazed how a simple change affected the quality of their lifestyle and saved them the cost of an addition. The final project was to renovate the kitchen in the same location. New cabinets and countertops along with a slightly bigger peninsula counter and an additional cabinet on the end created a functional and efficient kitchen that is consistent with the character of this very charming cottage house.
