Chadds Ford

Built in 1982 this ranch on a beautiful wooded lot in Chadds Ford was a challenging and fun project. The clients are art lovers and were interested in a rich, moody space. We opened the entire first floor up leaving a portion of the original kitchen wall as a barrier to create a faux foyer feel and allow them to keep a closet for coats. The other side of the barrier provides an excellent place for texture and art. Noteworthy details: The home’s original cedar was taken off with care and re-used throughout the new spaces. Large sliding doors were designed in a more economical way to do floor to ceiling glass.
