The client had a strong vision for what she wanted to achieve with this whole house remodel. In addition to a desire to bring life back to a 1970’s condominium unit, her selection of finish materials has created a very elegant space. The condominium building, originally built in 1974, was not well constructed and located on the beach, had experienced the wear and tear of ocean living – corrosion and severe weathering. Demolition took the walls down to the studs – basically reconstructing as much of the unit as possible.
New energy efficient windows were installed. Interior walls were opened to create larger spaces and to bring in more natural light. Worn out finish materials were replaced throughout the unit: Maya Ramanoff wall coverings create an elegant entrance; the former tile, linoleum and carpeted floors are now engineered maple; rich limestone marble and glass tiles in a circular motif bring a fanciful feeling to the remodeled kitchen; glass walls filled with strands of sequins divide the living and dining rooms and bring in additional natural light; the new fire place surround is of zebra marble tiles selected to offset the antique art deco fire screens; and, the dramatic and whimsical light fixtures further add to the ambience.
