The Transformation of a Post-War House Into a Fantastic Residence

The Roberts Residence is one of those homes that received a total makeover, making it hard to recognise after the architects finished working on it. The post-war house that used to occupy the lot has been transformed into a freshly designed residence for a young family of four. All the spaces in the house – the master bedroom and bath, 2 additional bedrooms with a bathroom and playroom for the children, the kitchen, living room, an office, gym, laundry room and storage – were recreated by tearing down the interior walls, second floor and roof. The 3,500 square feet house became a dream home situated on a slightly sloped terrain. A double-height volume featuring a glazed wall opens up to the outside space, offering beautiful views of the nearby park. The kitchen was prolonged outside on the terrace, creating a natural gathering space for the family and guests. Division1 Architects worked on this project that surprises the most elemental human desires: a dream home surrounded by nature. Thanks to Debi Fox Photography, we can all enjoy the beautiful Roberts Residence. Look below to see the before and after pictures.

    Great work. More people buying these nondescript ranches should be adventurous like this. I wonder how much of the original home is left?

    THis is really an incredible rebirth of this home. They had to substantially taken the old place down it seems. But – nevertheless, great space. Don’t care for the big slab of wood over the couch. I’d be afraid that would come down on my head!
