Ansley Park Carriage House Renovation

“The weekly meetings really helped me stay alert about what was going on and kept us making good decisions. SCAL provided honesty, integrity, great design ideas (with care taken for our ideas), great workmanship and superior communication.”  –  Marcia and Dan Klenbort

Project Highlights

  • Renovated Carriage House
  • Space Doubles as an Art Studio and Guest House
  • Historic Guidelines Required the New Building Stay within the Original Footprint

Before/After Floorplans

The clients wanted us to replace their dilapidated detached garage with a new carriage house/ art studio. Because of the historical requirements in Atlanta's Ansley Park neighborhood, we were restricted to building within the footprint of the original structure. The new design was simple and complimented the style of the main house and surrounding homes. By creating a loft area above the open living space below, we maximized the use of the space while maintaining an open and bright environment that made the space feel larger than it actually was. With a small kitchenette, bathroom, and sleeping loft, the structure functions comfortably as a guest house when the clients are not using it for their art studio.
