Two massive stone fireplaces, oversized oak beams, 14 foot ceilings made up the original features we intended to renovate & celebrate. A single bedroom and bathroom, in addition to living room, dining room and kitchen, made up the program. Relying primarily on the use of a single material with a limited color palette, we designed a series of events so as to create what we refer to as an “introspective space”, a place which would creative seclusion. Wood floors, rough plaster work on walls are the only other materials used, allowing for the full potential of the space to be celebrated.
