Guest Suite

The owners of this historic Cambridge home asked us to renovate a section of the house previously used as a pottery studio to create a comfortable guest suite for visiting relatives. They wanted the new space to feel like a private living environment with living, sleeping, and basic food prep needs all considered.
We began by introducing a custom entertainment center (with retractable television) to the center of the room to offer function and provide distinction between seating and sleeping areas. Along one wall, we introduced dramatic shelving for books, photos, and display of the homeowner’s musical instruments (the suite also serves as a music room for the family when guests are not in.) The floors, which feature radiant heating, were painted in a playful checkerboard pattern. A breakfast bar, to one side, provides guests with a handy space for light snacks and coffee preparation.
