Award Winning Architecture
Award winning architectural design from simple to dramatic.
The client wanted to change the existing space from a bare and boring great room to one that was warm and rich with a library feel. She wanted to incorporate a coffered ceiling, unexpected details and high drama. She needed the maximum amount of seating and a large entertainment center. An Old World feel that was timeless and classic was the look we were to achieve through architectural detailing as well as furnishings.
We designed cantilevered soffits that transcend into a barrel-vault ceiling. The entire room was clad in cherry with recessed panels using a series of decorative casings and moldings. The fireplace and mantel, a focal point, was created with bold detail, as was the custom, eleven foot tall entertainment center.
Furniture and lighting was selected on the basis of creating a dramatic room that was functional and comfortable. A custom, faux paint design and marble treatment was created on the ceiling to tie in with the wrought iron railing used at the opening to the second floor. The individual details of the room work together to equal the extremely dramatic result.
