Lawrence Architecture

Seward Park Residence

1937 historic photo


The kitchen of this 1936 house was relocated to a new south-facing addition, and the original dining and kitchen areas were combined to create a larger dining room.  The existing grade was raised to the south of the addition providing direct outdoor access from the kitchen.  A new arbor encloses an outdoor terrace with  adjacent herb garden. 


A bathroom and office were added in the lower level of the addition.  The floor of the original daylight basement was lowered to provide standard height spaces that include a family room, a bedroom and a large laundry/play room. 


The stair was reconfigured and extended to the attic and additional structure was added in preparation for a future second story addition. 

Completed winter 2000.
