Breeze Knoll Remodel
Westfield, NJ


The clients had reservations about buying this house because of its '80s asymmetrical contemporary style and beige colors, but when Curtiss showed them sketches of what could be done, the clients put their trust in their architect and purchased the house. Inspired by the stately homes of the client's hometown, Clayton, Missouri, Curtiss Byrne's design, dramatically changed the appearance of this house into classical Adams Style by adding a portico, gable, dormers, dentils, new windows and exquisite interior moldings. Even the existing brick veneer was removed and replaced with an oversized red brick. Details such as "spider web" munt bars on the arched window, real hinges on the dormers, and copper ice breaks on the roof complete the transformation.

Breeze Knoll Addition
Westfield, NJ


The homeowners' desire for a more functional kitchen sparked a kitchen remodel that included a new 200 square foot addition that would serve as a breakfast room. As part of the kitchen remodel, a double pocket door was added, opening the kitchen up to the existing Family Room.

The addition, designed to look and feel like a conservatory, is a light filled room with vaulted tongue and groove ceiling and heated slate tiled floor. Two sets of patio doors lead to a bluestone patio. Precise detailing was required to conceal structural members and maximize the amount of glass and the height of the vaulted ceiling.

An elliptical eyebrow transom punctuates the standing seam copper roof and continues the scalloped grille theme from the front of the house which was remodeled in 2010. Now more than just a breakfast room addition, the space has become a gathering spot for meals, entertaining, doing homework, or just simply hanging out.

Brookhaven Additions
Chesterfield, MO


Multiple additions phased over several years transformed this 1950's Ranch into a stately manor. The first phase was a 985 sq. ft. Master Suite Addition which expanded an existing bedroom and added a new luxury bathroom, walk-in-closets, an additional bedroom and a lower level work-out room.. Subsequent additions included an expanded foyer and dining room, a new front portico, the addition of second floor bedroom and bathroom, a workshop, and a large detached garage connected to the house with an arched masonry Porte Cochere. By staging the design and construction, the clients were able to spread the cost out of several years. One of the challenges for the architect was to keep each addition in proportion to the existing house with the goal of an overall uniform style. Adding large additions to each end of an already long linear residence presented another design challenge. Curtiss Byrne's solution was to break up the horizontal roof line with a new vertical elements which took the form of turrets and two story gables.

Outdoor Room
Lake St Louis, MO


Designed for a couple that likes to entertain and likes to be outdoors, this outdoor room addition was built with durable materials and has all the amenities for entertaining. The roof pitch and siding echo an existing sun room blending the addition in with the existing residence. On hot days, the roof provides shading while two fans, suspended from the tongue and groove stained wood ceiling, cool off guests. On chilly days, a fire in the stone fireplace provides the warmth. Built in wood storages makes it easy to replenish the fire. An outdoor kitchen with stainless steel gas grill and Green Egg smoker includes a raised bar that seats five. Completing this ultimate entertaining space is a wall mounted large screen TV which allows viewing from either the covered area or an uncovered terrace.
