1st Place Winner
Case Design/Remodeling, Williamsburg, Va.
The scope of the Stiles residence remodel was an almost complete interior renovation of the first floor of the home. This included a new kitchen, laundry, master bedroom, master bath and library. The project required extensive Shiloh and Crystal cabinetry, new bamboo, maple and cherry hardwood flooring and new paint throughout.
The client desired a design aesthetic that was clean and open, and would reflect the time spent in the Northwest and Asia. To achieve this objective, spaces were opened to allow more natural light and design details such as custom Shoji screens and a Japanese soaking tub were incorporated.
The challenge of this project was to achieve an Asian-inspired design with a traditional home in Williamsburg.
In addition, Case Design/Remodeling was required to provide a warm, traditional library of cherry cabinets and flooring within the design that offered a comfortable space to read. The new design needed to reconfigure the existing living space in the home to better provide for the client’s daily needs as well as frequent entertaining. The remodel also had to provide for the client’s expanding art and reading collections.
The home was remodeled to separate work and the living spaces. Offices were moved upstairs and a library was created to hold the clients extensive reading collection. The master bedroom was enlarged to incorporate the existing fireplace and increase natural light. Existing oak cabinets and tile floor were removed in the kitchen and replaced with natural maple cabinets and flooring. All cabinetry throughout the house was held 12 in. below the ceiling to allow for an art display shelf.
The overall project not only better serves the client, but also better represents their own personal styles.
