Foggy Bottom Residence

This 900 square foot historic row house in Foggy Bottom is intended to be a "boutique hotel away from home" for the Atlantic-hopping client and his family. Since the house is only 11' wide the over-riding goal was to maximize open space and create built-in storage and furniture, using the floor area as efficiently as possible. The main floor is completely open between front and rear in an effort to visually expand the space from interior to garden. The two long walls define the space. On the right a "warm" wall of wood which houses storage needs (including a built-in desk) accentuates the main sitting area, with the wood flooring sliding up the wall and across the ceiling. The opposite "cool" wall is defined by porcelain "steel" textured tiles around the fireplace, black and stainless steel stair and railings, and plate steel cladding around the powder room (including a custom steel door that disappears into the wall). The kitchen on this side also boasts stainless steel and high gloss laminate finishes. The main floor is covered in a blood-wood flooring which creates a rich backdrop against the dark steel and light ash cabinetry. The rear ipe deck, stained to match the blood-wood, steps down onto a simple red brick patio lined with white Mexican river stones.

The upper level is more subdued and tranquil. Warm maple flooring replaces the blood-wood, which emerges only in the finish of the custom master bed (an echo of the finish on the floor below). Two bedrooms and a high-end bathroom with a shower TV, 24" radius "rain" showerhead, and skylight complete the second floor.

the tiles are corten from porcelanosa..spanish fabricator...many companys now make this "look"..and there are variations in color ....almost too common now.....at least in modern design....there is a TV attached to fireplace... no issues w/ heat etc...it is a non-vented gas inset ...

My Fiancee and I love this look and are trying to find it. We googled Corten from Porcelanosa and it looks a bit different - i think we're looking at the wrong one. Can you please send the link of the tile you used? Here is what we found when we googled (the tile is midway down):

Get the magic touch. A push on some of the fireplace panels reveals storage behind them. Small footstools and seats conceal even more storage.
