Remodeled Hillside Residence

This beautifully sited hillside house overlooking the Ohio River was the culmination of an extensive gut remodeling with new additions. The long, thin body of the house was situated to maximize views of the river and conform to the constraints of the topography and existing street. The new additions provided a garage that did not previously exist, an enlarged kitchen area, a new Primary Bedroom situated to maximize the river views, and a new covered terrace stretching the length of the house allowing each room of the house to access it directly. The sweeping stairs that connect the terrace to the ground were strategically located to stay clear of existing trees and built on piers that minimize disturbance to the root systems.
