Urban Yet Private:

A Tudor in the city reorients itself to the neighborhood to welcome more light while maintaining privacy.

Challenged by a typical city-dwellers dilemma of wanting more light and more privacy, this Tudor-style home renovation strikes a happy balance of both. This is accomplished through Mitlyng Design’s renovation that adds 250 square feet of space and reallocates the function of spaces. The original flawed flow for this family found them in a bottleneck often. By adding a new family room as a core shared space and replacing an underutilized porch with the kitchen, it opened up the home’s flow. From there, it was about strategically placing windows for maximum light and privacy and tucking in functional and storage spaces like a built-in bar and pantry, a powder room and mudroom off of the side entry and a master bath, laundry and walk-in closets to the upper level.
