Though Allison is currently taking a semester off to take care of the newest edition to the family, 2-month-old Sarah (who joins big brother, 2-year-old Ben), she's normally a lecturer and the Principal Instructor for the UT School of Architecture’s Summer Academy in Architecture. She was able to do all the design work for the house, including demolition plans, design and product selection, construction documents, and project management with the builder.
The kitchen, of course, is our main focus for this post. Before, it was a tiny, enclosed, unfortunately-colored space. After the massive renovations, it's now an open, bright, transitionally-designed space, which fits the rest of the home's personality perfectly. Featuring wood countertops, seriously organized cabinetry and even a neat little trash can nook. We love how they approached this renovation project quite fearlessly, and love even more how the result was simple and effective.
