This full second story remodel, first floor addition & partial basement remodel is located in historic Piedmont Conservation District. Designation in an historic district requires a separate & fairly rigorous Design Review during the permit process. It was important to the clients (and to the building department) that the remodel design reinforce the area's historic significance and enhance the historic features of the existing building. At the same time, these environmentally conscious clients needed more room for their expanding family and comfortable access for people and bicycles alike.
