Cliff & Cove

THE UP STUDIO as Architects

Located in a quaint Long Island harbor town, Cliff & Cove is a historic Victorian home with reimagined interiors. The home, built in 1875, was in need of an update for the homeowners’ modern, growing family. The firm introduced contemporary design elements while preserving the home’s original character. The result is a renovation with equal parts timeless charm and modern design.

Careful preservation of original Victorian elements, including the staircase, fireplaces, and trim, create a playful foil to new design elements. New and efficient travel paths allow for ease of movement throughout the home. Additionally, seamless transitions between the kitchen, living, and dining areas offer the family ample opportunities to connect with guests and each other.
