Winthrop Road (Residence) by Jeffrey Klug
2012 - 2013, Bronze A' Interior Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The Design strategy uses the spatial arrangement of the Victorian era plan as a point of departure while conceiving of the program and architectural language in contemporary terms.
Creativity
Beauty emerges from embracing the compelling juxtapositions of the building’s history with our modernity. The replacement of an aging kitchen presented an opportunity to take advantage of the unique siting of this house - sitting at the top of a slope with an extensive and wooded rear yard. Overscaled custom windows and sliding doors connect the exterior and interior in this otherwise introverted Victorian house
Design Challenges
The challenge with any renovation resides in incorporating contemporary life – both technologically (HVAC, lighting, efficient appliances) and socially (new family and rituals from kitchens to closets) – in an historical fabric that implies a formal and spatial arrangement frequently in conflict with that modernity.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Winthrop Road Residence by Jeffrey Klug is a good example of a highly-developed project.
