Kingswood Penthouse

This client requested a contemporary/modern aesthetic. Due to the 'bones' of the original architecture, and taking into consideration the lines of their existing furniture, we decided to take this project into a contemporary/classic look instead. In doing so, we were able to save a considerable amount of money on furniture as we were able to reupholster and refinish many of their existing pieces. I used The Natural Textile Co. to complete the living room look with full length blended linen fabric drapes with a floral accent detail. The drapes soften the architecture and unite the upper windows with the room below.

By re-engineering the Juliette balcony in the living room, we were able to successfully create a more intimate living room environment. This also gave us an opportunity to reposition the grand piano upstairs. Doing so, enabled us to free up some space in the living room, creating a much better flow for entertaining guests and providing a more acoustically favourable position for the piano.

The dining room re-design gave us a nice opportunity to push the envelope. Reframing the ceiling into a graduated, 24k gold leaf dome, allows us to create an interesting focal point as well as provide us more space to accommodate pot lighting and speakers behind accoustical fabric panels which assisted in noise dampening. Custom millwork was designed to accomodate stemware and flatware, giving the room a rich, opulent feel. Bocci 14 mini's were used as the lighting within the canopy - a great local Vancouver company.

This was a wonderful project to work on - fantastic clients with vision, a talented architect and a full service contracting company with outstanding trades people and staff. Truly, a dream project!
