Portfolio :: Additions
Preserved and Enhanced
HSA, working from designs by Kelly-Tinker Architects of Ann Arbor, built a two-story addition for this historic home on Ann Arbor’s Old West Side. The remodel expanded the home’s kitchen, created office space and a second-floor bedroom, and relocated the home’s laundry facilities.
The remodel presented some specific challenges. The narrow lot provided limited access to the rear of the home, where the addition was built. An abandoned cistern was discovered partially in the addition’s footprint, and a diseased tree had to be removed. A landscaped pond further limited the room to maneuver. Yet the remodel was successfully completed – under budget.
The addition and remodel fulfilled the owners’ need for more living space while blending in with the existing structure. The project also met the preservation requirements of the Old West Side Historic District Commission.
