Private Residence: Savannah, Georgia, Landmark Historic District

Hansen Architects provided services for a renovation and an addition to this 1826, two-story home within Savannah’s Historic Landmark District. Restoring its distinction and creating a more functional home for today’s lifestyle standards, was one of the focuses of the design. The home features a beautifully designed foyer that is entered from the parlor level, formal living room with brown lacquered walls that opens into a bright, modern kitchen. There are 3 bedrooms on the upper most floor and 2 full bathrooms. A courtyard space using reclaimed Savannah Gray bricks for the new garden wall and automatic gates, provide a private garden and secure parking. This project received a Preservation Award from the Historic Savannah Foundation and was the winner of the “Great Room Makeover” contest in Savannah Magazine.
