The project brief was to renovate a 1200 square foot, two story apartment, for a client who had recently downsized from a family house of 35 years. Though the apartment had plenty of closets for storage, there was little wall space for the furniture that had previously contained and displayed life's treasures.
The china cabinets and roll-top desks from the house didn't have a place in this new home. So along with a change to an awkward corner fireplace, we built new custom cabinetry along one entire wall of the living space. It contains glass cabinets for display, plenty of storage along with housing a wall-mounted television and a new fireplace, complete with basket-weave marble tile face.
The Kitchen was renovated, removing an existing wall and dropped ceiling, opening it up to the full living space with a new raised bar for casual seating. Classic Shaker panel cabinets, black stone countertops and beveled edge subway tile backsplash complete the elegant, timeless look the client was after.
A skylight was added in the stairwell, flooding the previously dim interior with light. The bathroom also received a facelift, with new materials, featuring marble accent tiles.
