Project vision or goals

The main goal of this project was to enhance the home by creating a brighter, more open, and updated space. To achieve this, we started by installing floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, dining room, and study room. This simple change immediately brought more light into the space. Additionally, we incorporated a floating glass staircase, modern fireplaces, and completely renovated the kitchen, resulting in significant transformations throughout the home.

In the study, we added full quartzite slabs to the fireplace surround and bar backsplash, adding a touch of elegance. For the living room fireplace, we used large-scale tiles to create a dramatic look with minimal grout lines. These design choices helped to modernize the early 2000’s house, turning it into a chic and timeless home.

Project challenges
  The most challenging aspect of this project was the installation of the floating glass staircase. It required extensive engineering to achieve the desired perfection. The steel beam tub supports the floating treads, while the glass panels are securely attached for a seamless appearance. The addition of this staircase not only opened up the main living spaces but also created a stunning centerpiece for the home.

Another challenge we faced was fulfilling the homeowners' request for automatic shades on all windows without them being visible when raised. To overcome this, we installed shade pockets in the ceiling with hidden boxes. This presented a challenge due to the original floor joists, but we successfully made it happen.
Project solutions
  Thanks to the incredible work of our architects, engineers, and construction team, we were able to seamlessly install the floating staircase and hidden shade pockets. This project was truly a team effort, with collaboration from our clients as well. The end result was a stunning transformation of the home into a beautiful, unique, and elevated space.
