The Bold Contemporization of a Victorian Beauty

The re-invention of these traditional Victorian rooms to attain the Bold Contemporization of this Victorian Beauty was a collaborative endevour with extreme results the Clients are elated to live within. The opening of spaces created an expansive space to live and entertain. The quality appliances of Wolf, SubZero and Miele have elevated the Cooking experience for our Clients while the open comfort of the seating at the Island and the Dining Table is inviting to all. The Kitchen captures good natural light by day and dramatic light beams from the Sculptural Light Fixtures by night. The tension created between the nod to the traditional and the bold touches of contemporary make for a visually unique Heart of this Home!
