This home on West Earle Street is one of Greenville’s best known Art’s & Crafts era American Foursquare residences. Neal Prince Studio worked with the owners to renovate and add to this home in a manner that was sensitive to it’s place in the city’s architectural history, while thoroughly addressing the performance requirements of contemporary home environments.
The large foursquare had only one bathroom to serve the home’s three bedrooms, which created numerous challenges for family scheduling. The existing home’s simple, clearly arranged plan complicated any attempt to insert a new bathroom within the existing spatial arrangement. The architects elected to add a second floor to an existing single-story kitchen wing in order to provide the additional space required to meet bath, laundry and closet needs. In doing so, it also created an opportunity to replace an architecturally insensitive deck with a new porch that compliments the architecture of the original 1920 structure.
