Classic Irvington Tudor Remodel
Originally built in 1938, this Classic Irvington Tudor Remodel has undergone successive renovations to help support an evolving family.
What began as a design experimentation laboratory for a young single architect has evolved into an expanded dwelling to support a family of four and a small live-work arrangement. The first hole in the wall was a big-deal, and now a complete overhaul is old-hat. Design concepts maintain historic scale and character from the street and alley while integrating more modern interiors that expand to exterior only between house and studio.
Features include new modern kitchen/living space, new bathroom re-purposing vintage glass tile, custom built-in bunk beds, numerous custom storage accommodations, new loft level with custom open-riser stair re-purposed from original roof rafters, new Master Suite, new carriage house/studio connected to primary structure by way of a bridge and elevated deck, and new garage.
As with many personal residences, will it every really be complete?
The studio carriage house served as HAUS office from 2012 to 2021, when HAUS + WERK moved to G BLOC.

Phase Two Renovation Design (Classic Irvington Tudor Remodel)
Phase Two to include new garage/carriage house, breezeway/connector, rear addition, new upstairs primary suite, and other interior renovations.
Flagged for Demolition
The original garage was dilapidated and flagged by Marian County Department of Health for repair or renovation. We had intentionally not repaired the garage due to future plans. So we went ahead and demolished the garage before our plans were complete.
