Turn this traditional living space into a contemporary media lounge.
-Need enough seating for up to 17 people
-Incorporate both the 8′ movie screen and the fireplace as focal points of the seating area.
-Open up living space to kitchen
-Space plan so there is a comfortable, intimate seating arrangement while maximizing the floor space.
- Create a modern space with warmth.
-Keep two large windows at the end of the living room.
-Had to keep the step up around the fireplace because of piping that runs beneath.
-Do something with the side door and basement stairs.
Extend the existing half wall to a full wall and lengthen it to create a hallway that can access the side door and basement stairs, while hiding them from the interior view of the room. The opposite side of the wall houses the movie screen, television, and media accessories. During phase 2 and phase 3, the media wall will be further developed to create an organized mudroom/closet area, back-lit columns, open shelving to accommodate the clients media accessories, etc. The three sided fireplace is custom designed to divide the living/media room from the kitchen while keeping the spaces open to each other for socializing. Varying ceiling heights, soffits, lighting, and wall bump outs will be utilized in the space to add visual interest.
