Refreshing a classic bungalow in the restrictive Heights Historic District is challenging, especially when the aesthetic is more modern than craftsman. But when the Houston Heights Association recognizes your project as a 2018 finalist for the Community Improvement Residential Award you know the perfect balance of old and new was achieved.
The original structure was a cramped 1,194 sq. ft. in complete disrepair and surrounded by overgrown vegetation and trash. The new footprint, created by the team at Brickmoon Design, added a second story, garage, two outdoor porch spaces, enclosed outdoor kitchen, and over 2,600 sq. ft. of interior living space.

This project was completed for an artist who aspired to live in a space that fosters creativity and accommodates their creative process within it's modest dimensions. To increase the feeling of the space, the Southern Green team tied a slab on-grade foundation to a crawl space foundation that created an interesting elevation change from the kitchen into the living room.

 

The result is a revitalized bungalow that is streamlined, functionally chic, and features multiple one-of-a-kind elements constructed with modern materials. For example, the custom kitchen island is concrete with a reclaimed wood inlay designed by the homeowner.

Maximizing natural light was a top priority for this artist, especially in their custom art studio added above the garage. The art studio features towering vaulted ceilings, ample natural light from windows and skylights, and a custom 6’x10’ painting rack, as well as a guest suite.
 
The master suite also utilizes a large sliding door unit and clerestory windows to increase saturation of the natural light. The master bathroom boasts a walk-in, curbless shower and a floating vanity.
