“Many people have been curious about Tremendous on 26tH, partly because we’ve been working on it for over six years, and also due to its size. There was many interruptions along the way that impeded the progress, COVID included. The clients are overseas and wanted a home built for their family. They had a significant number of interests that they wanted accommodated. So some people would ask, well, why would you need 16,000 square feet? But aside from the 9 bedrooms and the 13 bathrooms, there was a lot of things that they wanted to do that take space. For instance, they have a ballroom and an entertaining room. A full library. We have a craft room for the kids, we have a fencing room, we have a tai-chi area, we have a media room that accommodates performances. There’s a large wine area. There’s just so many things including their spa and the gym and the sauna and the steam and the indoor pool, and so, that’s how you get to 16,000 square feet. When you design a home this large, the scale is so different. A fireplace that you may normally specify looks like a tiny postage stamp in this home. So everything from the fireplaces to the lighting to many of the features have to be large enough to work on this scale. The client was also very concerned about good feng shui in the home. So, without being feng shui masters, we knew the principle elements and had to redesign aspects of the home to accommodate that. We added water features in areas and changed doorways for better practices.
