Complete interior renovation of a 1980s split level house in the Virginia suburbs. Main level includes reading room, dining, kitchen, living and master bedroom suite. New front elevation at entry, new rear deck and complete re-cladding of the house. Interior: The prototypical layout of the split level home tends to separate the entrance, and any other associated space, from the rest of the living spaces one half level up. In this home the lower level "living" room off the entry was physically isolated from the dining, kitchen and family rooms above, and was only connected visually by a railing at dining room level. The owner desired a stronger integration of the lower and upper levels, in addition to an open flow between the major spaces on the upper level where they spend most of their time. ExteriorThe exterior entry of the house was a fragmented composition of disparate elements. The rear of the home was blocked off from views due to small windows, and had a difficult to use multi leveled deck. The owners requested an updated treatment of the entry, a more uniform exterior cladding, and an integration between the interior and exterior spaces. SOLUTIONS The overriding strategy was to create a spatial sequence allowing a seamless flow from the front of the house through the living spaces and to the exterior, in addition to unifying the upper and lower spaces. This was accomplished by creating a "reading room" at the entry level that responds to the front garden with a series of interior contours that are both steps as well as seating zones, while the orthogonal layout of the main level and deck reflects the pragmatic daily activities of cooking, eating and relaxing. The stairs between levels were moved so that the visitor could enter the new reading room, experiencing it as a place, before moving up to the main level. The upper level dining room floor was "pushed" out into the reading room space, thus creating a balcony over and into the space below. At the entry, the second floor landing was opened up to create a double height space, with enlarged windows. The rear wall of the house was opened up with continuous glass windows and doors to maximize the views and light. A new simplified single level deck replaced the old one.

Imagine That Kitchens + Baths
Clients’ Design Objective: To update the kitchen of this 70-year-old home to better accommodate a growing family. The Challenge: Major obstacles to this update included small rooms, too many doors, a plumbing stack located near the center of the room and an ill-placed chimney. The Solution: By closing one door, moving another, and removing the wall between the kitchen and breakfast nook, the clients created a larger kitchen with improved traffic flow and additional storage. The new hallway houses a pantry with recycling bins and a broom cabinet with a side opening for a built-in television on a pullout swivel shelf. A pullout spice cabinet, built-in microwave above the appliance garage, and cozy banquet with storage below all maximize storage space. A shallow, infrequently used closet is now a functional mudroom. The finishing touch includes a showpiece buffet with seeded glass cabinet doors that also serves as the buffet for the dining room.

Pappas Design
A classic cook’s kitchen that also provides kitchen dining with a direct connection to the patio and terrace gardens. In the new design, we added new windows, French doors and skylights to bring in more natural light while the mahogany island defines new work centers; two sink/water locations, high-performance equipment, and ample countertops for multiple cooks to use at one time. In a modern take that uses simple, classic components - we applied a mix of white, earth brown, and gray in porcelain tile, Cararra marble, painted cabinetry, butcher block and Cambria counter tops - to suggest grandmother’s old, French kitchen. Bon appetit! Photos by Rhea Pappas.

this old house in the garden park neighbourhood in east van was divided into 3 suites when my clients purcahsed it. with a growing family, they bought the fixer upper with the intention of taking over the upper suite and opening up the main floor. in the process, the whole house has been gutted & refurbished. there's a lovely & legal suite in the basement, a beauitiful open concept main floor plan and 3 bedrooms upstairs with a gorgeous vaulted ceiling in the mezannine. it's been a pleasure replanning this home and helping select finishes & furnishings.
