The challenge with this remodel was to achieve the eclectic vision of the homeowner for a house with elements of French Rococo, Moorish Revival, and Art Deco styles. The starting point was a house with classical bones.
The house features a mix of rustic and fine finishes: distressed truck decking flooring and a tin ceiling in the bar, a fireplace of rusticated black granite paired with reclaimed Douglas fir, gold-leaf ceilings, and Venetian plaster walls.
A lot of craftsmanship went into details like the gold-leaf ceilings, which required craftspeople to work from scaffolding for almost a month. Our masonry subcontractor climbed into the fireplace structure to install steel beams to support the weight of the granite fireplace surround.
The owner was living on the site during construction, so we had to be precise in orchestrating subcontractors and sequencing the work.
