We were approached via our reputation online by a successful couple with three grown children and grandchildren now becoming a focus in their lives. To relax and stay in excellent health, the couple enjoyed playing tennis and purchased a large suburban home with a private tennis court, plus an indoor swimming pool for their growing family. The indoor pool had many structural and cosmetic issues after suffering delayed maintenance, HVAC mechanical failures and in general being let go by the previous owners. Our clients’ desires included upgrading their natatorium as well and several primary interior spaces of this magnificent home.
They had done some renovations but the prior company had not followed through on details. They asked us to correct unfinished work. The clients had also collected some lovely, high-quality, solid wood Danish modern furnishings which we promptly identified for reuse, refurbishment and inspiration.
An initial design plan was created with construction docs and all materials specified. A high-quality GC was hired to begin the natatorium project first. The pool was completed drained and refurbished with new waterline glass tile and refurbished mechanicals. The existing automatic recessed cover was buried below ground to maintain proper indoor humidity levels and improve aesthetics. The interior deck surface also received a modern gray concrete overlay texture to the delight of everyone. The pool bathroom and weight room were refurbished with furnishings and plantings added to beautify the indoor pool sitting space.
With the pool well underway, Jeff moved into the main home for a second phase remodel and furnishings plan. The GC remodel included electrical, lighting, floor coverings, millwork, paint and AV upgrades. Custom solid maple wood shallow built-ins were created and installed as to not overwhelm the dry stack stone fireplace façade. New broadloom carpet was installed, with custom wool area rugs created by the desginers as well. The existing Danish furniture was sent out for refinishing and reupholstery, then returned and married with exquisite new custom furnishings in the great room, dining room, and foyer. Many existing furnishings in the home worth reusing were inventoried, space planned and creatively recycled into a fresh media/billard/grand children’s play space into the basement to save money.
The client’s love of Danish Modernism was interpreted, and the love for family shines through in every inch of this gorgeous remodel and furnish project. Call Jeff to design your next remodel and furnish project today!
