It’s down to the last touches on this project; the owner has actually moved in among the dust of the punch-list tasks. These books were saved from the house before the project – and add a musty sense of history to the place! I think they look great in the painted shelves. The ‘library-style’ lights above each shelving bay will cast light on the books and other items.
These adjustable lights are hardwired, mounted at the top of the built-ins. This is part of the Dining Rm that will also be used as a home office / library. The view from the entry hall seen below (photo is slightly blurry; this project hasn’t been professionally photographed yet – this is still my point+shoot)…. I like this light fixture – I’ll find out where the owner got it.
The kitchen / great room seen below has french doors opening to the rear patio, with a continuous slate floor from American Slate. (among other punch-list details, the threshold here will be modified to better ‘disappear’). The simple, geometric stainless steel hood is by Viking.
Below is a sketch of an alternating tread stair I designed to access a raised sleeping loft in the guest area of this house. These types of stairs take up half the length of a typical stair and are good for space constraints, as we have here. This hasn’t been completed yet, or photographed – more to come!
