Taylor Residence Addition and Carriage House Minneapolis, Minnesota

A deteriorating addition to this historic home originally designed by Harry Wild Jones was replaced with a slightly larger addition. Downstairs is a new kitchen, breakfast room and half bath. Upstairs, a laundry room, exercise room and covered porch were added. The new carriage house mimics the form of the residence and provides an upstairs workshop with on-grade access from the rear.
