This project won us “Best Remodel” and “Best in Show” in the ASID Design Excellence Awards, 2014. The homeowners wanted to remodel their historic home in Pemberton Heights. The challenge was modernizing the space, while still staying true to the historic and traditional architecture of the home. The client preferred a neutral palette with a timeless aesthetic, but also wanted to incorporate a somewhat vintage and industrial feel. They also wanted a view into the backyard and a space for entertaining.
The Kitchen and Dining area was completely opened up and more square footage was added on to the back of the home to create a larger, more functional space. The Living area opens up to a screened in porch with an incredible view to the outdoors. Large sliding glass doors were installed for a more modern aesthetic, to provide a better view of the backyard, and to let more natural light into the space. The doors could also be opened fully to extend the Living Room space to the screened porch for entertaining indoors and out without mosquitos!
The home received a complete cosmetic make over of all finishes. The materials selected included white beveled subway tile with black grout for a classic industrial aesthetic, natural Quartzite countertops for luxe style and durablility, and the use of clean lined brass cabinet hardware for a more modern aesthetic. Light fixtures were a perfect mix of classic and industrial style with brass accents to play off the cabinet hardware. Existing floors were sanded and stained a darker color to contrast with the shades of white.
