Midwest Hamptons

Major structural changes were required to create the desired open plan in this home built in 1910, with an original protocol for the separation of staff and family. Like many houses of the time, a kitchen remodel was addressed in the 1990’s, without clear integration with other spaces, further complicated by episodic addition and remodeling throughout the main floor of the house over time. A lovely unifying façade, preserved over time, supported the notion of open, flowing interiors even as we had to create them more than a century later by employing textural and material continuity, integrating historically separate circulation, and overlaying a new structural order. Today, all spaces are for family practices and patterns, views are sweeping and engaging, and inside flows outside casually and comfortably.
