NORTHSIDE RESIDENCE 2
HISTORIC RENOVATION AND ADDITION
NORTHSIDE HISTORIC DISTRICT, LEXINGTON, KY
This project was a renovation and addition to the 1865 Dabney House on Third St. in Lexington’s Northside Historic District. GTT's Darren Taylor and Clyde Carpenter, transformed the existing 4,500 sf structure into habitable space for the family by keeping the rooms as they were, only repurposing two bedrooms for bath suites. We added a new rear addition that abutted the rear of the house. A visual glass “seam” gave a break between the traditional house and the modern addition. On the interior, a new rear stair becomes a center focus through the entry hall, washed in light from roof top skylights, it provided an accent to the rear glass wall that opened to a pool on axis with flanking guest house and garage.
