Colonial Update

Studio Santalla completed this project in phases, as is the case with many renovation projects. The goal was to create spaces best suited to the client's lifestyle. Space efficiency was also key to the design, so spaces like the Master Bathroom doubled in size by using an adjoining, underutilized area. Downstairs, the spaces were opened up to improve flow and natural light.

The redesigned spaces reflect the Owner's desire for their home to reflect their lifestyle.
