Ravenna Addition

Tudor in the front, party in the back: the upper level of this charming Tudor revival bungalow was well preserved, but the basement was mostly unfinished, except for a delightful bedroom outfitted like the captain’s quarters of a ship.

We converted the basement into sleeping and living spaces and connected it to the upper level with a new stair that adjoins the historic space with a new pointed arch to match an original one in the living/dining room.

To accommodate the homeowner’s love of cars, we added a new garage on the back, with a rooftop deck that spills down to the back yard. The new stairs are bordered by a screen which will slowly be overtaken by star jasmine. A heat pump was hidden, with great effort, under the stair landing.


Preserve existing front facade and upper level. Finish existing 900 SF basement, new stair and kitchen alterations, new garage and roof deck.
