Residential architects who specialize in the hot, humid, southern climate

On the Boards

We are designing a major renovation for a house in Long Cove Club on Hilton Head Island. The house sits on Broad Creek and the new owners want to be able to take better advantage of the gorgeous view.

The exterior updates include new doors and windows, changing the columns and handrails, removing the arch above the front doors, adding a water feature and landscaping. The dormer windows will be changed so they are functional from the upstairs bedroom, they currently have a sill- height at about 5 ft!

The addition of a screen porch and roof terrace will give the family plenty of outdoor living space.  I bet they will spend more time here than anywhere else in the house!

The floor plan has been reconfigured to provide more of a connection between inside and out. We are removing nearly every interior wall and giving this dated home a major refresh! The large multi-slide doors between the living room and deck will make the space so much brighter and airier.

The fireplace surround will be a single stone slab, which will be a dramatic, modern and sleek look and a BIG contrast to the dated, faded paneling and built ins that is there now.
