This spacious basement features a wall-to-wall shelving unit that has been fitted with convenient pullout drawers for stowing away small Lego pieces. The shelves also provide room for speakers that work with the home's integrated sound system.
A contemporary wine cellar features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, providing full view of the homeowners' wine collection. Floating stairs bring an airy quality to the space, while the natural wood and a stacked stone add a rustic note.

In the billiard area, designers created a masculine design by using a dark-neutral color palette to anchor the space. They brought in a modern pool table with traditional green felt, and they created built-in storage for the homeowners pool cues. They also added custom, built-in bookshelves to showcase the homeowner's book collection.
