The existing residence lacked continuity and architectural detail in the primary living spaces. Hirshson Architecture + Design removed an existing fireplace and replaced it with a new design and mechanical systems to allow for a series of pocket doors aligning the family room, living room and kitchen. A double-height living room separates the kitchen and the family room. Large windows are balanced by an illuminated art niche above a marble firebox and floor-to-ceiling panels. The kitchen was expanded and filled with custom cabinetry blending shaker door fronts, with texture panels, high-gloss wood veneers, and a custom polished metal hood. In the family room, a custom cabinet anchors the room providing ample storage for books, media components, and personal objects.
