Modern Urban Revival

When our clients acquired this classic Beacon Hill condominium overlooking Boston Common, they sought collaboration with Feinmann Design|Build to renovate the entire space. The lack of connection between the kitchen, located in the back of the home, and the living and dining rooms was the focus of the redesign. Also on the wish list was a new bedroom and a second family bathroom to be located in the area of the existing kitchen. The resulting plan for this extensive renovation was an updated floor plan to match our clients’ modern lifestyle, while retaining much of the homes original detail.

Connecting the most frequented rooms in the house required relocating the kitchen to the front of the condo to be closer to the living and dining rooms. A wall anchored by elegant columns defines the kitchen and adds sophistication to the adjoining dining room. Natural light shines through skylights that were exposed when the kitchen ceiling was opened and then styled to reflect the classic woodworking details found in the rest of the home. White marble counters grace the custom built island, perfect for a casual meal or for doing homework.

While reconfiguring the master bathroom and renovating the second bedroom proved to be a major project, our skilled team also relocated the new bedroom and family bathroom to the area where the kitchen formally was. Each of the three renovated bathrooms truly achieved a style of their own – in the Master Bath, a soaking tub and shower are enclosed, as is traditional in Japan, in floor to ceiling glass. To complete our clients wish list, we designed and built a classic Japanese Tatami room to double as both a guest bedroom and meditation space – a unique feature within a classically designed home.

Hi and thank you for your question. We love this tile! We used it vertically but it can also be installed horizontally! So versatile. It's Sendai glass mosaic in natural, large brick tile. Hope that helps.

Hi & thanks for your question. The vanity was made by Restoration Hardware. We're not sure they make the single vanity any longer but there is a double vanity called Shutter. Good luck!

Hi. We're a bit confused as we see a bathroom photo with your question, not a dining room. Sorry we can't be of more assistance.

Edge Finishing of Tile - Hi there. I'm installing a similar tile in a bathroom and I'd like to know how you finished the edging here—the one that's on the back wall. Is there a bullnose edge? Something else? Is it just rough? Please let me know. Thanks!

Hi Aviva,
Thanks for your question. The tile goes floor to ceiling so there is no edging per se, just a row of smaller tiles at the top. Hope that helps.

The key to the clean edge is having the backerboard very close to the same plane as the adjacent wall. Do all the taping, mud, sanding and even primer on the adjacent wall, then tile. This works well with most materials, like glass, marbles, thru body porcelains. Cut tiles need to be flipped 180 degrees so the rough side is facing away from the exposed edge.

We're glad you like it! We like it, too. The glass mosaic tile on the shower wall is Sendai natural large brick in an offset pattern.
