Modern Condo - Cleveland Park, DC

The living room ledge echos the tile on the fireplace and provides just enough display space.

Braitman stole space from one of the bedrooms to enlarge the living space – making the space feel better proportioned and better oriented to the door to the balcony. The bulk a large entertainment cabinet is minimized by recessing it into the adjacent room (making that room smaller still). It's presence, howevere, is quite striking, When the cabinet doors are closed it projects a mere 3 inches into the living room and becomes – along with the ledge and lamp -- almost abstract art. The small ledge is created from the same materials as the fireplace. When the doors of the entertainment cab are open, it’s a comfortable place from which to watch TV. The lamp hanging from the ceiling was a creative solution for hiding an inactive sprinkler pipe in a wall we removed when we enlarged the living area. We couldn’t remove the sprinkler pipe without coordinating with the fire department and draining the line for the entire building. So Braitman camouflaged it as a hanging lamp. [ It’s decorated for Christmas in the picture.]
