Residence on Longfellow Wellesley, MA

Home Renovation

Honoring the history of this stately Victorian was a top priority for homeowner Kisten DiBella, of Kristen DiBella Interiors, who, along with her husband, general contracted the project. We designed an extensive gut renovation and reconfiguration with the intention of creating an open, casual, and modern interior. Opening up the space meant the removal of all the bearing walls; to achieve this, significant engineering was required to integrate 30′ steel beams into the framing.

A primary sleeping chamber was constructed above a newly added first-floor office. Next to it, the former bedroom was converted into a large dressing room, expanding the entire master suite. At the rear of the house, the roof was reframed to create additional height in a space that was previously an attic, allowing for an amazing primary closet and bathroom.

We made every effort to maintain the original molding and details of the home wherever possible. In cases where they had to be removed, they were replicated to match what already existed.
