Location: Wauwatosa, Wisconsin
Status: Completed 2019
The owners of the Harry and Nita Schroeder House in Wauwatosa’s Historic Washington Highlands neighborhood approached GCA to update and modernize their kitchen. This Dutch Colonial Revival home had a small kitchen that didn’t function well for this couple who likes to cook. While the footprint of the kitchen was not increased, we got every inch out of the space, by using a pocket door, recessing the range into the garage wall, creating a large opening to dining room, and using a slim profile radiator. Trim details were borrowed from other parts of the home, so that this renovation flows seamlessly into the rest of the historic home.
