PLYLER KITCHEN The Plyler family loved this historic home and it’s surrounding neighborhood. However, the original owners of the house had designed the kitchen of a live-in cook. The small size and awkward layout was not conducive to a modern lifestyle.
The original kitchen will be completely demolished, and an entirely new structure will take its place. In keeping with the guidelines of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the design solution takes a form that is distinctly different from the original structure so that it can be clearly differentiated as an addition. In addition to the enlarged kitchen footprint, the design also includes a new reading loft on the second floor above, as well as a new mudroom and breakfast terrace.
