A non-original kitchen and two non-original bathrooms were removed, allowing the first floor to be restored to its original configuration. Wright’s bath and kitchen were re-instated with period appropriate finishes.
A structural shortcoming in the roof framing was previously addressed with painted steel tie rods, marring the view of the living room. In collaboration with Robert Silman Associates, VHA designed a stabilization system that allowed removal of the tie rods and restoration of the interiors.
New steel members concealed in the gable and eaves address the structural shortcomings.
A multi-phase plan was developed to restore the original turn of the century landscape.
