This is one of the most enchanting “before-and-after” projects we have done. The original house was built entirely out of concrete, with a façade that left you wondering if this was a house or duplex.

In opening up the ceilings and walls of the main living area, we found beautiful metal beams that we left exposed. We painted the existing metal paned windows and doors black to fully showcase their quality and beauty, making them a central feature throughout the home and exposing the original character. By replacing all the finishes, enhancing what lay beneath the surface and completely re-thinking the façade, we were able to create a contemporary looking home with a distinct industrial twist and an whole lot of charm.
