Palm Beach, FL
This project called for the creative restoration of a Spanish Colonial Revival style house in Palm Beach, Florida. Built in 1928, the house is a stucco balloon frame two-story building attributed to the architect John Volk as one of his early works.
Many of the house’s original features had been retained, but it had also been renovated and expanded periodically over the years. Many renovated interior spaces were threadbare and gloomy and bore no relation to the original house. Our clients commissioned us with the intent of preserving the integrity of the original house while renovating and replacing the spaces that were later interventions. New rooms, spaces, and architectural features were designed to be in the spirit of the old. Quality and authenticity of materials and craftsmanship were of paramount importance.
