Before & After Transformation

Our clients had purchased this Tudor style home that had a major addition done prior to their purchase.  The addition wasn't all that sensitive to the style and massing of the existing.  The homeowners approached Brehm Architects wanting to change the look and improve the curb appeal without altering the massing of the addition.  We proposed a new front porch, a few simple architectural changes, new materials and staining the existing brick.   We think these moves really transformed and dramatically improved the look of a house.  What do you think?

 Our clients were thrilled with the result and love their new home.  Here's a portion of their review: 
"Greg Brehm, and Project Architect, Tim Hawkins, have an excellent design eye and even more important, they are great listeners. During our meetings Tim would always capture even the most mundane or minute details that we mentioned. When we met with him and Greg, we gave them a VERY rough idea of what we wanted and the two of them really brought our vision to life."
