Ravenhill House, USA

When the owners purchased this 50’s ranch home outside of Philadelphia, it bore most of the original elements. Ravenhill House had nearly 3,500sf of single level living space, but the rooms were closed off from each other and had low 8′ ceilings throughout. They knew they wanted to open up and modernize the property, and so Studio Robert Jamieson focused on vaulting the existing ceilings in the living room by adding a dramatic cedar clad dormer.

This completely transformed the interior and exterior of the home. The existing exterior stone walls were retained and now create a perfect counterpoint to the wood cladding. The existing faux shutters were removed, the roof was replaced and new aluminum clad black windows and trim was added to complete the update.

The long, low living room was transformed to a bright, airy, yet warm vaulted space, accentuated by cedar cladding from the exterior being extruded through the home on the ceiling and interior wall between the living room and the kitchen/dining area.

The large cedar clad wall with custom steel pass-through shelving, now acts as a fulcrum from which anchors the connected kitchen/living/dining spaces, which were previously separated.

The living room is further accentuated by a fireplace mass clad in artisan plaster that works as a cool counterpoint to the cedar clad wall adjacent to it.

This wall, like the cedar wall, also floats in the space, providing access to the entryway beyond. The new kitchen, with a combination of walnut tall cabinets and matte white base cabinets provide ample space for cooking and entertaining, with the large island separating the kitchen to the dining area.

The guest bathroom was updated with a new walnut floating vanity, herringbone wall tiles and encaustic concrete floor tiles.
