Beautiful historic Tudor cottage remodel in Cherry Hills Village

This historic Tudor cottage was completely reimagined to its original 1930s splendor by KGA Studio Architects, located in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado.

The homeowners tasked the team with retaining the spirit of the home’s historic Tudor design while removing and renovating outdated features that no longer fit his family’s lifestyle.

The architect’s approach was a delicate dance of looking back and looking ahead that evolved into a rewarding process of bringing a design with deep historical roots into the modern era.

The front door was moved to the other side of the original stair tower to accommodate the new foyer (replacing the original kitchen location).

In the foyer, a trio of large windows creates a soft pull toward the interior and frames views of a new guest courtyard.

A dark outdated kitchen with low ceilings was reimagined for the modern era. Its new location between the foyer and tea room is better situated near primary dining and entertaining spaces.

The tea room windows served as inspiration for the black steel windows throughout the home and are the only original windows remaining.

This area is completely separated from another upstairs wing that’s accessible from a different part of the home. Varying ceiling heights throughout the main level were also retained, a playful nod to the home’s historic nature.
