Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
This walkout basement had two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space. The 8-foot drop ceiling made the space feel confining, so the ceiling tiles were removed and the space feels much more open and airy with the newly exposed rafters with an attractive loft-like feel. After removing ugly redundant wiring from the entire ceilings, pipes, beams and walls were sprayed white.
The second floor of this modern home features an orange accent wall, black steel railing, west-facing clerestory windows, and a wood plank ceiling. The space offers interesting acoustics for a budding keyboardist.
This theater is the largest of the four screens with seating for 170 people.The perforated metal screens on the walls provide the required acoustics for watching movies and the faux walnut panels on the ceiling create an elegant coffered design.
Designers at Kelly & Co. Design describe this renovated barn as "such a special space" for guests to relax and enjoy live performances. The design team was able to wire the barn for live music performances by re-framing the entire space with acoustic sound panels. For TV viewing, a large TV was hidden in the ceiling and can be lowered by remote control.
