VITALITY RESTORED

Originally designed by Charles Oliver and built in 1924 at the crossroads of Houston’s flourishing River Oaks, this fine house had been well cared for yet never updated. Morningside Architects designed an adaptive restoration which preserved the architectural heritage the new owners loved while introducing updated functionality and spatial flow. For the kitchen the architects reclaimed and opened up wasted space to introduce cooking and casual entertaining into the mainstream of family life. A new master suite was created from several adjacent rooms upstairs, recasting the original second level sleeping porch as a master closet, and giving new life to the master bath. The attic was redeveloped as an exercise studio.
