Legare Street Elevator & Garagecompleted 2015
LFA Architecture was presented with the challenge of adding an elevator to this 1900 house, to provide functionality and accessibility for the owners while not detracting from the architecture. The elevator was tucked at the rear, minimally visible from Legare and Logan Streets, with architectural details to match the Queen Anne style house. Inside, the elevator location required creating a new powder room under the stairs. During the project, a garage was also added at the rear of the property and the pool area was renovated.
Contractor: Stocky Cabe, Omni Constr.
