1922 LOHI BUNGALOW REMODEL
This project was brought to us by an investor looking to breathe new life into the original 1922 brick bungalow. A design + build, turnkey approach was applied, beginning with verifying what was there. Working within the confines of the original structure, the original brick was exposed and the space was completed with white oak flooring, and a new exposed timber beam to give the space an urban loft feel. The open concept plan allows residents to easily circulate between the living, kitchen, and dining spaces, while the exposed beam provides a subtle division of space.
The plan includes a flex space (shown as an office). Natural light, exposed brick, and the original fireplace feature create a warm and inviting space. The original fireplace was preserved, blending past and present finishes.
The eat-in kitchen space was detailed with unique mosaic tile flooring. The remodeled kitchen features an island complete with range, hood, and bar seating. The modern mosaic backsplash ties the white quartz countertops, dark wood melamine cabinets, and stainless appliances together. The living room space includes a feature wall of the original brick, as well as an exposed wood post and beam. The interior post and beam detail is echoed outside in the front porch supports and details.
Locally sourced reclaimed Colorado Blue Pine Beetle-Kill lumber is used for the porch ceiling. The updated front facade is a modern take on the original house, with a stucco finish to contrast the wood and metal details of the porch.
