Remodeled Residence 6,001 to 10,000 square feet

Bespoke Living

The ultimate goal for this home was to create timeless, sophisticated spaces tailored to the lifestyle of a young family. Reimagining the home’s 1980s-style decor and finishings, the design team took the house down to the studs. During this initial phase, they dealt with outdated architectural details, such as semi-circle windows, and a church-like scale issue in the living room. Phase Two included a two-story, three-car attached garage addition. 

The redesigned floor plan incorporates two home offices—one of which can turn into a guest room when needed—a music conservatory doubling as an adult hangout space, a new upstairs laundry room and a renovated kitchen and primary bath. Tweaks were made to modernize each room, transforming them into more functional and beautiful spaces.

To revive the kitchen, the project team replaced the cabinets and opened the area into the hearth room, showcasing a new, more luxurious fireplace. The team used natural materials like plaster, soapstone, marble and walnut to connect the design with the expansive backyard view.

The “church” was the project’s biggest challenge. Instead of using trim to marry the fireplace to the ceiling, the project team built out the fireplace wall farther into the room before anchoring it with an oversized, pre-cast mantel. They removed all the decorative niches and built-in cabinetry, converting the space into the adjoining music room to create a sophisticated bar and record area. They also increased the size of the double doors, removing the transom. Other bespoke details include classical molding on the music room walls, custom arches that frame the bar and record cabinet and a deep-green hue that sets the mood.
