Family Chic

Young newlyweds were looking to transform their home into a chic, sophisticated space for both relaxation and entertaining friends and family. Our approach was utilizing materials that were both luxe and livable, taking into consideration pets and a baby on the way!

The renovations were all about creating a spaces for entertaining. The compartmentalized main living spaces were opened up with the help of a structural engineer. A bearing wall and two outdated columns were replaced by steel beams that fit into the ceiling system above, and the the structural work continued all the way down to the footers in the basement. We worked decorative moulding around the new ceiling beams to make it appear as if they were always part of the home.

The basement was reconfigured to create a functional media room allowing seating for 10-12 people.

The wooden deck and stairs were problematic for the homeowners in terms of maintenance and also entertaining. So, it was replaced by a new stained concrete deck featuring steel railing and supporting columns to coordinate with other site elements. We increased the deck's footprint by a few feet to allow for additional seating and a convenient grilling space right off of the main living area. The new structure was designed to keep rain out of the patio below, so we seized the opportunity to improve the ground-level patio space by adding motorized screens, five ceiling fans, wood storage for the fire pit, and an outdoor television. The aging patio slab was replaced by a new contemporary paver system and its footprint was enlarged to create more area for lounging. The light fixtures on the rear of the home were all updated.
