THE STORY BEHIND THE PROJECT 

This home encountered a tremendous transformation! The original layout of the main living space of the home consisted of 3 rooms: living room, dining room, and kitchen. Everything was separated by walls. In the center of the home was an open-air atrium. The main living space felt very compartmentalized and dark- especially since the ceilings were only 8 feet high.

I set out to open up the home. I took down walls, expanded the kitchen into the former atrium of the home, and added as many windows and skylights as I could. I even built a custom portal window to catch a glimpse of the Back Bay. I also exposed a 17 foot peaked roof as we opted for vaulted ceilings to brighten up the new great room.
