Suburban Serenity

St. Anthony Village, MN

Sometimes it is necessary to re-evaluate the aftermath of past alterations to find the right plan for a home. That was the case for this 1960’s two-story colonial revival in St. Anthony Village. Our task was to rethink the circulation and establish a connection between rooms and to the outside. Careful planning corrected the past alterations throughout the main level and provided more natural flow between spaces with a meaningful connection to the back garden.

Of Note 

- The layout of the main level was conceived with aging-in-place in mind. In the event of needing a wheelchair, the storage room off the mudroom could be made into a walk-in shower and connected to the half bath. 

- Baking is a lifelong joy to the family; cabinets throughout the kitchen’s perimeter were deliberately planned to store the varying sizes of baking utensils. A lower baking counter was created in order to provide a more comfortable kneading surface.
