Are you stuck on how to use your space? Do you need some help getting the layout figured out as a jumping off point? Do you have a large wall that you want to use for storage and other functions, but aren't sure how to design it? Do you know you want a built in somewhere in your home, but need someone to draft and design it for you?
If any one of these is true and you aren't looking for a full design package, then this service is for you.
Here are a few layout options for a Flatiron loft that had a huge open concept layout. These large open layouts can be the most challenging for clients, so here are a few options we provided our client to separate the space.
This was for a family of 4, with two kids in elementary school. The entry is to the far right, where we created a separate foyer with a half wall, and then large glass casement style panel that ran the full length of that wall and up to the ceiling. This kept the light pouring into the foyer but designated it as a landing pad for the family when they came inside. It also provided a divided space for them to have a console table and hooks along the lower portion of the wall to hang back packs and jackets.
The long windows offered the perfect location to build a massive window seat that provided a cozy place to read a book or do homework, plus additional seating when they entertained large groups of people. The ceilings were 14 ft hight so suggested a tree built into the window bench to truly bring the outside in.
This was a wardrobe that we designed to fill an 11ft. long wall in our clients bedroom. By building this wardrobe, the client was able to move their clothing/shoes/accessories into this space and use their large walk in closet as a home office.
At the center we hung a prized piece of artwork our client owned and had a marble slab lay across the opening to create an open shelving area.
Here we designed the upper cabinets of this kitchen to tie into the art deco style of the Park Slope co-op our clients live in.
The kitchen was extremely minimal with no uppers when they purchased, but our client is a professional chef. Therefore, adding these upper cabinets for additional storage was key. The far right had open shelving that could house her most prized cookbooks.
