Private Residence

These clients came to us with a very sweet back story and a grand vision for their forever home. After years of living in the first floor apartment and providing in-home care for the elderly owners, this couple inherited the house and the opportunity to transform the upstairs into their home.

The upstairs had been untouched for the better part of 50 years and was in need of updates and repairs. At the Second Floor we removed walls and incorporated the enclosed front porch to create a dramatic open plan Living / Dining / Bar area. Both rear porches we rebuilt for connection to the lovely gardens designed by our client. The roofline was raised to create a third floor Master Suite with skyline views.

Their extensive art collection and strong color sense enhanced the design process and fixture selections. The result is a transformed home that fits the neighborhood while offering something new and dramatic on the horizon.
