Project Description

Before moving into this newly purchased home, the owners had an opportunity to renovate their living areas on the top level of the house. Included in this is a stair leading to the lower level and surrounding walls. The owners wanted the walls to be a pivot point in the room— like a sculpture—rather than a room divider. Inspired by Mexican architecture, the new walls were reframed in the original footprint and covered in American Clay texture to simulate stucco. New art niches with spot lighting and small peek-a-boo windows allow sight through the structure. The old wooden railing was replaced with a custom metal fabrication and the carpeted stair was swapped with Brazilian walnut wood flooring. The new stair and art niche walls not only open up the space, but doubles as an art installation that the owners are enjoying.
