With the hope that their kitchen could be moved or expanded into another part of their home, the homeowners turned to Penza Bailey Architects. After further evaluation of their needs, it was determined that a 920 SF renovation with a 440 SF addition would provide for a larger foyer, mudroom, powder room, and a bar area leading into a new kitchen. 

The historic 1924 designed northern Baltimore City neighborhood adheres to architectural standards intended to retain its original look and feel. Paned windows, stone exterior, and copper roof were dictated by the association’s guidelines. Inside, the design blends the home’s traditional details with contemporary finishes including white shaker cabinets with crown molding, while chrome drawer pulls and knobs, a white subway tile backsplash, and a white marble countertop. A vaulted ceiling and double paned doors leading to the patio flood the space with light.
