...restructuring, wall removal, skylights, interior projects.
The existing fireplace worked. . .but was miserable from both an esthetic and practical standpoint. The restructuring of it is sleek, modern, and accommodates a contemporary gas fireplace, large-screen TV, and concealed sound system.
What do you do with a useless, ugly, room that was part of a bad garage conversion? Why, open it to the adjoining master bedroom and create a stunning library, that's what. Even the necessity to step up into it was turned into an advantage. From lemon to lemonade!
The living room, family room, entry, and kitchen were in their own, cramped cubicles. All the walls were removed to create a sprawling great-room. The rear wall of the house was reconfigured with large expanses of glass, so even the back yard is part of the design.
Rooms in this middle-aged ranch house were cramped and boring. Removing walls, vaulting the ceiling, and relocating the kitchen, transformed the house into a stunning and roomy dwelling for this young family. Light tumbles into the area from overhead skylights.
This beautiful home was hampered by a claustrophobic entry. Instead of merely widening an existing archway into the living room, the entire wall was removed and replaced with a huge beam. An innovative trim-out, including lighting, added even more to the ambience.
A tiny bedroom adjacent to the entry was a catchall for clutter. The new office benefits from a feeling of expansiveness and the entry is now far more grandiose. The art niche provides a focal point exactly where it's needed and unifies the two spaces.
