Reimagining a historic home.

This is a designer’s dream project! It was all about taking a 1930’s house in the heart of an urban neighborhood and transforming into a modern home and showroom for the owner’s extensive furniture and art collection. With a completely reconfigured interior, a once small house was revived into an bright, open and spacious abode.



The design took everything down to the studs in order to transform the small spaces into open galleries that gives the entire home a museum feel. Lot’s of white allows the furniture to pop and a custom designed and built sculptural stair becomes a piece of art itself. Featuring aluminum and glass doors, natural white oak flooring and a contemporary kitchen, every detail was considered.

On the exterior, corten steel wraps additions to the house calling them out as new and standing in contrast to the original clapboard house. As the steel weathers into a beautiful russet, it becomes part of the surrounding landscape.
