Barton Parkway House

The project was an extensive reconfiguration and remodel of an existing house that was originally built in the 1960s and featured an unfortunate addition from the 1980s.  The existing house was a disorganized framework of fragmented rooms with dark interiors.  Although the backyard featured a large prominent oak tree with a very straight posture, the existing interiors where wholly divorced and disconnected from it.  The design strategy was to open up and reconfigure the interiors by organizing them along a highly detailed pecan feature wall, which orients the residents to the tree whilst unifying living, dining and kitchen areas. 

Charles involvement was limited to ground floor public spaces and better connection to the outdoors.
