Built in 1910 outside of Cleveland, Ohio, this home lacked a functional kitchen or any connected spaces. A beautiful butler’s pantry, office, walk-in pantry, sitting nook, kitchen, and informal dining space were woven into a comfy living zone. An updated back entry and bathrooms were also included in the project.

The challenge was to create a combined cooking, dining and sitting space that complemented the already wonderful formal areas of this distinguished and historic Gates Mills Ohio estate, originally designed by architect Walker and Weeks. Separated rooms and an outdated kitchen were demolished, creating an open plan. Careful detailing including custom moldings and crown that reflected original ornamental woodwork helped to relate our new space to the historic rooms. High gloss blue cabinetry in the butler’s pantry lends a sassy note.
"George and his team are the best I've ever worked with. If you are planning a renovation of any size, I wouldn't do a single project without George on my team. He not only is a brilliant architect, but he's a great sounding board when it comes to contractor quotes and change orders. In what you pay in architecture fees you'll save in contractor costs and in peace of mind."
