Project: Passive Duplex – Front

Builder: Geography Contracting

The Story:

Brother and Sister took the initiative to upgrade Grandma’s single-family home into a duplex to provide a comfortable living environment for their growing families.

Both siblings; young professionals with new babies, needed a space that was durable and low maintenance within their budget. With an open-concept plan, they now have the perfect living environment to fit their casual lifestyle without adding more clutter. This also allows them to entertain friends and family without having to worry about storage and accessibility.

Working with their expert team, they crafted precise remodeling plans to acquire Passive-House EnerPHit-Plus certification for their residence.


The Design:

In the kitchen, you’ll find cabinetry in the beautiful Rift Cut White Oak with splashes of blue and white accents to create a cozy and inviting vibe. By using paneled appliances, you get a unified, seamless aesthetic. We have maximized the storage with a pull-out pantry, an appliance garage, and hidden drawers in the toe kick.

Off the kitchen, there is a custom entertainment unit to store electronics, board games, and other items, while also displaying items they have collected from years of travel.

We have utilized the typically wasted space under the stairs with custom-built cabinets that provide closet space and additional storage.

In the main floor bathroom, we used traditional subway tile and wallpaper for a bold yet timeless look.
