Zoning in this area created some significant limitations to the building envelope, so we created a modern-day British row home exterior façade. Using white brick and dark windows, it had a classic British charm. For the interior, the clients wanted a contemporary feel with European influences and eclectic touches. The challenge was to blend traditional elements found in historic homes with current design styles. We achieved this by keeping strong black and white contrasts and adding textures, details, and warm wood tones. We accentuated the mix of modern and traditional on the ceiling by adding historic panel molding and modern light fixtures. The result is a timeless home with interesting details no matter where you look.
