Brief Explanation of the Scope of Work

This customer’s house had a beautiful old stair going up from the main level. It was important to the customer and his architect to reproduce the look and style of it in the basement build out. This required copying the fan-shaped bottom treads, the detailed newel post, the rail and matching the stain.

Unusual Constraints or Challenges & Creative Solutions

The gas fireplace was also a must for this project. Venting it required special framing all the way to the back of the row house. This elevation was brought together when we suggested adding a hi-end TV in the space above the fireplace. It is wired to a hidden AV cabinet on the other side of the room with an infrared eye.

Simple clean lines were a must for this customer. The hidden storage closets along the stair wall, aligned with those of the bulkheads and column build-outs helped hide the out of level floor, walls, and ceiling of the original basement.

A small powder room adjacent to the stairs turned out to be a “Swiss watch” with its paneled walls and polished mosaic floor.(Photographs never do justice to small spaces).
