The column has to stay…make it work!
Project Style: Urban Transitional
Project Size: 4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms;
4,127 sq. ft.
Home Story: As a world-traveling business person, this homeowner needed a pied à terre near downtown Tampa for quick visits as well as hosting various friends and family. This 2-story, waterfront property was the perfect size and location – just absolutely the wrong style. The entire interior and exterior were remodeled to align with the homeowner’s contemporary aesthetic providing a backdrop for art and sculpture.
Challenges & Points of Interest: The center of the main living area had a heavily-coffered ceiling and two columns that did not fit in with the new design. The ceiling and one column were successfully removed. Turned out the second column had to stay…a support issue! But what seemed like a lemon, turned into delicious lemonade when the team collaborated on custom cabinetry that incorporated the column. Well done!
