This whole house transformation took its cue from the existing beamed and vaulted living room that seemed to belong to another house in another time. We opened up the rest of the first floor allowing the living room’s texture, material and space to flow into the entry hall, around the island closet, through the family room, and out the kitchen windows into the pond beyond. Responding to our clients’ love of the raw and the distressed we introduced counterpoints of mild steel, recycled oak, and charred fir balanced against the elegance of lacquered wood, glass tile, and Carrara marble. The most striking element being the 20 foot-long monolithic charred fir wall standing opposite its inspiration, the eternal winter flame of the fireplace.
