Two massive stone fireplaces, oversized oak beams, 14 foot ceilings were some of the original features we intended to renovate & celebrate in the new space. A single bedroom and bathroom, in addition to living room, dining room and kitchen, made up the program.

Relying primarily on the use of a single material with a limited color palette, we designed a series of events so as to create what we refer to as an "introspective space", a place to allow for reflexion, for creative seclusion.

Wood floors, rough plasterwork on walls are the only other materials used, allowing for full potential of the space to be celebrated.
