Located in the Franklin Park neighborhood of Pittsburgh, this renovation is a mix of 1970s craftsman and alpine styles. The renovation included both interior and exterior work, with the elevations being updated and the floor plan being almost entirely re-worked. The living area was expanded and the kitchen moved to allow for a windowed axis to run the length of the rear of the house and a secondary axis running from the front door to a windowed view of the back yard. The kitchen and bathrooms were all updated with white cabinetry, quartz counter tops and brushed nickel hardware. The master bedroom was also updated and a small loft added. Germanic timbering was added to the elevations, as well as other alpine style elements, while still maintaining the angles indicative of the craftsman style. The result is an aesthetic which is both traditional and contemporary.
