A previously cramped 1940s Tudor home is now a light-flooded and livable oasis thanks to Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture. The owners of the Forest Hills, Queens residence approached the NYC architecture firm for help expanding their beloved but outgrown wooden frame house. Respecting the clients' wish to retain the look of the property's front facade, JPDA came up with an open floorplan extension that provides the necessary extra space without compromising the home's curb appeal.
Since preserving the Tudor-style pitched roofs and brickwork of the house was paramount, JPDA decided to create an extension that would leave the front of the home unaltered while expanding the rear of the property with a tasteful and modern addition.
The new space’s double-height ceilings and abundant windows bring in plenty of light and views of the verdant backyard.
An open living and kitchen area boasts lots of room for entertaining thanks to a sprawling countertop and dining table for eight.
The addition also allowed for the home’s master suite and bedroom to be expanded into larger spaces.
JPDA’s clean and sophisticated extension successfully adds to the space and value of this Queens home, but no one has to be the wiser thanks to its completely intact facade.
