summer street residence
This single family home in historic Forest Hills Gardens, Queens, NY was entirely renewed with the coordinated effort of the construction manager, Essential Design + Build, the architect Daniel Flebut, DF Architect PC and the homeowner, herself an interior architect and designer. The interior of the home was taken back to the framing and extensively reorganized around the kitchen, pantry and family rooms to better function for the family. Essential Design + Build lead the reconstruction which included all new electrical systems, new and efficient mechanical systems, and improvements to the exterior envelope of the building all to improve the overall efficiency and comfort of the home. The original arts and craft features and architectural detailing were carefully restored or recreated to keep the original 1920's character that famously epitomizes the homes of this fabulous neighborhood.
