After visiting the Wall Street project during an open house, a neighboring family was inspired by the design, and decided to take the leap to renovate their nearby home in historic Bethlehem, PA.
The 1800’s home was built with structural walls that prevented the owners from having an open-concept living space. A new steel beam on each of the three floors creates a more generous living area.
On the ground floor, this translates to an expansive living room with an oversized couch running along the back wall. Upstairs, this larger space is used for the owner’s suite, which is combined with a dressing room and home office.
The kitchen, which used to be at the back of the home, is now in the middle of the ground floor. New oversized doors open out onto a covered porch to make better use of it for outdoor dining. At the back, a new dedicated dining room serves as a perfect venue for dinner parties.
The attic was insulated and newly finished, to create a new guest penthouse, with its own ensuite.
Construction is underway and expected to be completed in Fall 2023.
