The client wanted to maintain traditional detailing at the front of the house and add more bold and contemporary design at the back. On the main floor we removed the front vestibule to create a more welcoming entry that has marble tile inset in dark wood flooring. We widened the openings from the hallway to both the living and dining rooms. The living room has original elements including the fireplace, trim, ceiling medallion, and pocket doors to the dining room. The client selected beautiful tile that we installed from floor to ceiling around the fireplace to add drama to the dining room. The kitchen has cabinetry on both sides and an L-shaped island in the center. The new powder room has a freestanding sink
We designed a new master suite in the second-floor addition with a generous closet and an en suite bathroom with a freestanding tub in the shower enclosure and double vanity. We created an office for the owner in the existing second bedroom by removing the door and creating a wide opening. We retiled the fireplace, included a transom to bring in natural light from the front bedroom, and added a coffered ceiling. The hall bath has a wall-mounted vanity with a mirrored tile wall.
In the basement, we created an open area for the living room and designed a kitchenette that the client may add in the future. This level also has a bedroom, bathroom, storage, and an entry door from the front patio.
