Light + White Space = the strategy to combine a sense of light (visual pathways between grand columns) with a page-white palette for the space. An 11′ x 15′ white “house” serves as a guest room with bath as well as an understandable interruption of the open floor plan, punctuated by ceiling ‘clouds’ above.
Owned by relocated New Yorkers who are also award-winning graphic designers, this live-work space was especially chosen for its historical roots. Originally it was the head-race/turbine room within the Standard Mill. Historical photos helped to guide the design, for example recessed tracks that now glide kitchen/conference tables mimic a path that coal carts took many years before. Textural nooks and wall interruptions provide playful backgrounds for the Owner’s eclectic collections.
