Marble and finely grained quartersawn maple create a simple aesthetic that runs in variations throughtout all of the rooms of this complete interior re-build. The use of waterjet cut, hand inlaid onyx lotus flowers creates an evocative entry.

This project received the award for the 2010 CT Homebuilder's Association Best Bathroom Renovation. It features a 5500 pound solid boulder bathtub, radius glass block shower with two walls covered in book matched full slabs of marble, and reclaimed wide board rustic white oak floors installed over hydronic radiant heat in the concrete floor slab. This bathroom also incorporates a great deal of salvage and reclaimed materials including the 1800's piano legs which were used to create the vanity, an antique cherry corner cabinet was built into the wainscot paneling, chestnut barn timbers were added for effect and also serve as a channel to deliver water supply to the shower via a rain shower head and to the tub via a Kohler laminar flow tub filler. The entire addition was built with 2x8 wall framing and has been filled with full cavity open cell spray foam. The frost walls and floor slab were insulated with 2" R-10 EPS to provide a complete thermal break from the exterior climate. Radiant heat was poured into the floor slab and wraps the lower 3rd of the tub which is below the floor in order to keep the thermal mass hot. Marvin Ultimate double hung windows were used throughout. Another unusual detail is the Corten ceiling panels that were applied to the vaulted ceiling. Each Corten corrugated steel panel was propped up in a field and sprayed with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide for approx. 4 weeks to accelerate the rust process until the desired effect was achieved. Then panels were then cleaned and coated with 4 coats of matte finish polyurethane to seal the finished product. The results are stunning and look incredible next to a hand made metal and blown glass chandelier.

In Detail Interiors
This English Tudor architectural home combines classic styling, fixtures and fittings with modern convenience. The kitchen is quite large yet the client did not want it to feel that way. In order to keep some of the coziness she desired, we opted to put in a Wolf two hob electrical unit in the island where the cook spends most of her time. This allows her to do “quick cooking” in the mornings while keeping conversation going with her two young sons and maintains a galley layout within the larger footprint of the space. This hob also does double duty when entertaining, acting as a hot plate for service and an extra burner for prepping foods by the caterer. The Pro refrigerator was chosen to “lighten up” the heavier feel of the English Tudor design with some contemporary pizzazz. This unexpected bit of modernism along with a sleek Blanco faucet adds just the right touch of Wow! The second island is considered the entertaining island as it helps direct the traffic flow in and around the kitchen area as well as adds some visual definition of the kitchen and breakfast area. Again,keeping it cozy and functional in a large space. This island is home to a subzero integrated wine refrigerator and bar sink. The large armoire storage area across from this island hides a working “appliance pantry” that also features a pot filler to fill the coffee pot! We included casual seating for the two boys at the main island and additional bar seating at the entertainment island. This use of dual islands keeps the kitchen from feeling too large. The brick alcove encloses a 48 in wolf dual fuel range with antique walnut shelves on each side. The alcove is a focal point of the design however it blends in with the surrounding cabinetry to appear as it has been there for decades.
