The conceptual design is a valuable tool when handed over to the capable hands of a professional cabinet maker. Consulting with the cabinet maker ensures that the end results meet the vision and the needs of the client.
These custom cabinets provide much needed storage space, making the best of a small breakroom.The upper cabinets provide overflow storage for miscellaneous office products.
The santuary needed updating of all finishes, coverings, lighting, audio and video equipment. The Pastor wished to be closer to the congregation.The stage was not deep enough to hold productions or even to place the piano on it. I enlarged the stage which more than doubled the original size. The Baptistry used to have just a curtain hiding the tub and now features a removable wood panel. The cross was replaced with one designed to scale for the opening and point lighting was added to make it a prominent feature.
I designed wood paneling to frame the choral area and removed the wall hiding the pews. The pews were replaced with comfortable and rearrangable seating. The seating now can be rearraged to open up the stage even more for large productions. The harsh flourescent lights were replaced with ecclesiastical stage lighting.
The pews and all other wood finishes were refinished in a darker stain as the old stain had aged to a very high yellow. The pews were covered in cushions and fabric for more comfort. The lighting previosly was not uniform and harsh, I replaced the sputnik style chandeliers with simple but elegant dome chandeliers. The windows peviously were crinkle glass of pink and purple. They were replaced with beautiful custom stainglass windows.
This 1970's building was remodeled extensively to bring it into the 21st Century. The heavy drapes that contained 30 years of dust were removed and a film was added to the windows to help with glare and heat. Unfortunately the original terrazzo floor could not be salvaged and I created a pattern in black granite and porcelan tile to ground the lobby floor.
The bank uses this room as a combination conference and community room.This carpet is in modular squares. If any area is damaged the carpet tile is easily removed and cleaned or replaced. Patterns and borders are unlimited using the carpet tiles. In addition to the conference table there is also mobile storage for folding chairs and tables that roll out of the way when not in use.Three of these beautiful leather and silver 42" chandeliers are featured in the conference room and two in the lobby.
The footprint of this1970's home's kitchen space was actually 6'x8' but the dining area that was open to the kitchen had a lot of wasted space. The cabinets to the left in before photo, are acutally in the dining area. The corner walls to the far right in after photo are outside walls, so opening up in that direction was very costly, Instead I chose to come out into the dining room area. This changed the linear counter surface area from a meager five feet to twenty six feet. The eat in counter also provides additional storage.
For this kitchen remodel the counter tops are quartz and the back splash is procelain tile. To help with the heaviness of the narrow space I have incorporated a section of open shelving. The kitchen cabinet style has simple panel doors with Amish Style molding, which is very appropriate for a small kitchen without looking too modern.
