The goal was to turn the basement stairs into a straight run, add a wine cellar that was a visual part of the room along with a large bar and entertainment area that flowed to the outdoor living area. They also wanted a full theatre room for screening the latest flicks. Their taste embraced a very contemporary aesthetic.
The work included relocation of several plumbing lines and a water heater along with reframing the stairs and new trim, flooring and finishes throughout.
The original thought was to replace the door and windows with a full Nanawall system but costs were trimmed as often happens and the folding door became a replacement door system for better operation and weather sealing.
The stair landing was removed and a straight run was built with glass treads illuminated from beneath. The wine cellar became a series of commercial glass doors to feature the entire collection at once.
The large island was wrapped in a waterfall of marble in a bold green and black pattern.
The owners selected an imported tile that was extremely large which created installation issues. The floor had to be carefully floated out to provide a level substrate for a perfect look.
