Hudson Valley Residence
This contemporary design was to create a Lounge for a couple who loves to entertain. The Living lounge blurs the lines between kitchen and living area. The custom kitchen has a warm lounge like atmosphere that disguises its utilitarian purpose. The clean lines of the custom cabinetry carries over into the living space with its cereused oak finish, calacatta neolith stone and modern light fixtures to the hearths lounging side- or maybe its vice versa. The design makes it hard to tell where one space ends and the next begins. So sip a cocktail, make some appetizers with your guests and watch the kids play as this space opens up to custom playroom shelving. The biggest challenge for this project was dealing with existing mechanical units and the limited height of the space. Playing with the idea of a floating beamed ceiling tricked the eye and made the space appear larger.
