The raw, rambling third floor had one well-sized room, but the rest of the space was a jungle of trusses and HVAC ducts.

To create a focal point, the bottom section of the ornate fireplace (originally in the great room) was placed on a wall that is flanked by bookcases. The fireplace is not functional, but it creates a handsome backdrop behind the homeowner’s desk.
