The custom reach-in closet pictured in white melamine accommodates two easily. Triple aluminum sliding doors with milky glass allow greater interior function and accessibility. The tapered vertical panels allow for the use and visibility of upper shelves. The unit is elevated off the floor to avoid heating vents. The many pull out accessories in this reach-in include drawers and a jewelry tray, a chrome basket, a valet rod, belt rack, tie rack and a pivoting mirror.
This cherry wood closet was designed to function as an in-home 'boutique' where the homeowner can select clothing and accessories and prepare for an evening out. The lighting is on dimmer switches and turns on automatically when one enters the space. Cherry wood and frosted glass sliding doors don't project out to interrupt the traffic flow in the space. The mood is serene and invites one into the space to enjoy the event of selecting the right attire for the event!

Photography by Ken Wyner 2101 Connecticut Avenue (c.1928), an 8-story brick and limestone Beaux Arts style building with spacious apartments, is said to have been “the finest apartment house to appear in Washington between the two World Wars.” (James M. Goode, Best Addresses, 1988.) As advertised for rent in 1928, the apartments were designed “to incorporate many details that would aid the residents in establishing a home atmosphere, one possessing charm and dignity usually found only in a private house… the character and tenancy (being) assured through careful selection of guests.” Home to Senators, Ambassadors, a Vice President and a Supreme Court Justice as well as numerous Washington socialites, the building still stands as one of the undisputed “best addresses” in Washington, DC.) So well laid-out was this gracious 3,000 sf apartment that the basic floor plan remains unchanged from the original architect’s 1927 design. The organizing feature was, and continues to be, the grand “gallery” space in the center of the unit. Every room in the apartment can be accessed via the gallery, thus preserving it as the centerpiece of the “charm and dignity” which the original design intended. Programmatic modifications consisted of the addition of a small powder room off of the foyer, and the conversion of a corner “sun room” into a room for meditation and study. The apartment received a thorough updating of all systems, services and finishes, including a new kitchen and new bathrooms, several new built-in cabinetry units, and the consolidation of numerous small closets and passageways into more accessible and efficient storage spaces.
