Finger Lakes Vacation Home

This Aurora, N.Y., summer hideaway needed a kitchen update that would make the most of the available space. We were tasked with executing a preconceived design through construction and project management. The exposed timber frame is a trademark of this home, but it presented challenges. Our ingenuity with onsite modifications solved problems while respecting the intention of the designer. The checkered island adds visual appeal to the room, plus additional storage with drawers underneath. We also completed a bathroom remodel, with a custom marble tile arrangement on the floor and a radiant heating system that warms the floor tiles, shower stall and a built-in bench. The final touch is a vessel sink perched upon a marble countertop.

Ivy League Kitchen

For this home from the early 1900s, we worked in close collaboration with the homeowners to achieve a look that respected the period and the home’s architecture while still making a statement. Our team restored and reconfigured the built-in cabinets that were original to the kitchen. We cut out a section of those existing cabinets to create a pass-through from the kitchen into a room that they now use as a breakfast nook and library. Stand-out features of the kitchen include an exotic dark hardwood for the floor, and brilliant green lighting fixtures to pull the eye toward the custom millwork surrounding the windows and then out to the lush backyard. Reconstruction of the adjoining laundry room and mud room allow the three spaces to work harmoniously.

Mission Style House

The owners have a passion for mission-style architecture and craftsman touches. We designed and incorporated elements throughout the home and exterior that capture the clean lines and dedication to detail that these two styles demand. For instance, our team rebuilt the porch and added bespoke posts, handrails and spindles. The doors to the two-car garage are a custom design made of stained cedar. Because the property is secluded, we designed and placed 12 decorative lamp posts to illuminate the driveway. With additional mission-inspired touches inside, the owners felt like their home finally reflected their taste.

Cayuga Heights Kitchen

This kitchen reflects the elegant style of a Midtown Manhattan high-rise condominium. Ultra high-gloss materials and a crisp white palette create a feeling of opulence. These choices required the team to be exceedingly delicate during the construction process so that the materials would remain pristine. Along with creating a kitchen that is unique within its suburban location, it is exceptionally functional. Custom cabinets were built to accommodate all of the cookware and kitchen essentials for someone who loves to cook and entertain. Only high-end appliances were selected, and then placed inconspicuously beneath the counters or concealed with custom panels. The marble floors are heated for comfort underfoot at any time of day, and lighting fixtures were selected and placed not just for performing tasks but also to set a mood. Our team installed a home automation system that controls the lights, audio and temperature.
