The owners of this Cape Cod wanted to enlarge their kitchen and create a more open, light-filled living space on the main floor. The clients are Mid-Century enthusiasts—this is reflected in their existing décor. Our designer extended the rear of the home by 13 feet along the whole width of the house. This allowed for a large kitchen with an island and a sitting room.

On one side of the house, we opened up the wall to create space for the large kitchen but kept the brick wall on the other side of the house (now painted orange). This required installing a steel beam that is hidden in the ceiling. To learn more about this project, e-mail
