“We are thrilled that our small project has turned into an example of innovative reuse.

The existing home was a 70 year old split-level house. Zero additions, renovations, or unnecessary additions resulted in unacceptable compromises to the views, circulation, and natural conversation surrounding the house.

We utilized the entire lower level as well as the upstream side of the house to create a large entertaining / family room.

We tied the two main components of the house together – the fireplace wall and the glass and steel door – around a series of three glass chandeliers that were designed and constructed by our design team and owner, Maggie Boudley, assisting with lighting and accessories.

The glass chandelier is the single light fixture that provides warm illumination to the dining / family room space.

It is a simple globe with a matt glass shade such that the light hits all areas.

The original fireplace was designed by the original owner, then removed and repainted with a matte white linoleum by our design studio.

Our design studio continued the fireplace and television pallet theme throughout the house.

The television pallet is resting against the fireplace wall, behind the original fireplace.”
