The owners of this 19th Century townhouse in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC had several goals when they approached Nahra Design Group for the design of their home renovation. A primary objective was to create an open connection between the enclosed kitchen at the center of the home and the living room. The master bedroom and bathroom on the second floor were oddly configured, and provided insufficient closet space. Lastly, it was important that the original architectural features of the home be preserved, and that the renovation complement this character, unlike the previous more modern renovations.
A reconfiguration of both the first and second floor cores allowed for the kitchen to living room connection, increased kitchen storage, along with a new butler’s pantry, a more functional master bath, a new master walk-in closet, and an enlarged guest bath. Great care was taken to replicate existing architectural details from custom plaster mouldings to custom millwork and aged marble tile.
