E.L. Powers House Kitchen
The E.L. Powers House and project provide a unique opportunity to showcase an historic house and the principles of historic renovation and preservation that facilitate modern living therein. The original interior features a spectacular array of leaded glass, terra cotta tile work, lighting featuring aurene shades by Tiffany & Co., and intricately detailed millwork and casework.
The remodeling, contained within what was originally the kitchen and butler’s pantry, showcases how skilled design work makes modern living feel at home in a structure from an era when spaces functioned much differently than they do today. Thoughtful use of precedent and detail achieve this without falling into caricature.
Aiding in the stewardship of this local architectural treasure was both a unique opportunity and an honor. In cases like this, we endeavor not to blaze a trail of unprecedented design ideas, but to do justice to and preserve our architectural heritage.
