BOSTON, MASS – SEAPORT LOFT RENOVATION
This 1500sf old-factory turned private-condo gets a full renovation
This condo was a recent purchase of our clients, so much so we accidentally threw away her brand new air mattress she had been camping out on when we started demolition. (Don’t worry we bought her a brand new one!) We demolished the entire interior of this condo leaving only the exterior walls.
We demolished the entire interior of this condo leaving only the exterior walls. The goal was to transform this previously renovated space. It was uninviting when you entered, walking directly into a wall. Opening up the area to show off the high ceilings and huge windows while maintaining privacy for the bedroom and office.
We worked with Amy Kearns to design the kitchen with Leicht Cabinetry in Germany which features integrated appliances, quartz countertops, and Porcelanosa backsplash. The single thing we saved from the previous renovation was the white Viking range which fit perfectly in this almost ALL white kitchen.
Let us talk about the vision behind this coat closet. The client approached us with a need of storage but hated putting this “giant box” right in the entry hall, and we collectively worked to make it appear as though it was on wheels or floating thus giving it the appearance as being lighter and not as intrusive. Do you think we succeeded?
The bathroom features a soaking tub, double vanity, and barrier-free shower. Located adjacent to the mechanical room which houses the new HVAC unit which feeds the exposed spiral ductwork; painted white to match. Also included is the water heater, mop sink and side by side washer/dryer station.
The bedroom tucked in the opposite corner of the unit with a twelve-foot tall pocket door that hides away most of the time. When open you get a glimpse of the super-funky Cole & Sons wallpaper we installed on just two walls of this unit. A dramatic reaction when you enter the unit and turn around.
