Every house needs a relaxed retreat, and this ornate Victorian was no exception. The attic, a favorite room of the owners, had a problem common to many old homes: it was uninsulated. The challenge in this project was how to retain the rustic feeling of the original attic while providing the amenities that would make the space more livable. ROBA’s solution involved building a new structure beneath the old one and insulating the space between.
The new space became a Victorian version of an open plan family room, with a built-in entertainment center, wood stove and office.
