Buckhead Area Kitchen Expansion
The owner's of this 1940's cottage-style home in the Buckhead area of Atlanta had seen a couple of additions over the years to address their growing family of 6.  However, those renovations addressed bedrooms only, and not living space.  So the goal was clear when CS Design Group became involved and saw a unique underutilized outdoor center courtyard...  Expand the Kitchen in such a way that it is comfortable, functional, and inviting for the whole family!

The Kitchen's small, but central location, presented some interesting opportunities.

An adjacent central and unique interior courtyard gave us a great opportunity to expand.
