The client who owned an existing row home in historic Georgetown desired to make the space more livable and inviting. The tiny enclosed kitchen was opened up to create one space for eating, dining and entry. The fireplace was flanked by cabinetry matching the kitchen to extend the visual feel of the space. By opening the kitchen, the street side windows fill the entire space with warm natural light. The elm wood cabinetry provides a subtle contrast to the existing oak floors and brings a warmth to the space.
