A Spec-house plan was redesigned and modified pre-construction, creating more work and storage space, much better furniture layout areas and creating art display walls. This charming three-story townhome was created for an ethnic art and textile collector who enjoyed entertaining and cooking frequently. The welcoming public spaces are located on the second floor in an open floor plan divided by function rather than walls. The atmosphere is one of restful, comfort and hospitality in its casual elegance. The bedrooms are on the third floor separated by a seating area for privacy and to muffle sound.
