Newport Residence by bldg.collective
The owners of the Newport Residence wanted to update their dated, ‘used to be’ contemporary 1980’s home that had been subject to a series of patch work renovations over the preceding decades. While the focus of the renovation was on the interior, the exterior also got a material update, new entry canopy, and a refresh of the front landscape.
The renovated home reconnects the interior of the house to the exterior spaces which allow the house to live larger than its square foot number implies. To achieve this, we reconfigured the main level of the home by relocating the kitchen to the light-filled vaulted space at the front of the house and removed an interior fireplace and laundry room that cut off the connection to the interior stair and entry. New high-performance windows, custom built-ins featuring a wine display wall, fresh materials and contemporary lighting complete the update to the home.
