HISTORIC RENOVATION AND ADDITION
CHEROKEE TRIANGLE HISTORIC DISTRICT, LOUISVILLE, KY
What began as a simple kitchen renovation to a 1901 townhouse in Louisville’s famed Cherokee Triangle neighborhood, quickly blossomed into a full renovation and addition. The family of 4 did not want to leave the community they were in so making an addition was the viable option for them. GTT's Darren Taylor and Clyde Carpenter created a rear addition of a glass “seam” to separate old and new, then a large sloping roof that housed a second-floor bedroom “box” floating above the living space. The exterior walls were large two story glass expanses that allowed a transparent view to the side yard, a rarity in the area, which the family had acquired after the neighboring house burned.
