This is the view of the living room, looking into the kitchen, dining area, and mezzanine work space upstairs. The main challenge was how to create intimacy in this 55 ft. long space. To achieve that goal, the sofa, chaise, and chairs were placed closely together to form a circular conversation area. The far end of the room, with a 9 ft. ceiling became the dining room, seating up to 10 guests. The middle of the space, in front of the kitchen was kept open as a grand entrance to this floor. it provides cocktail party space, a dance floor, and acts as a sculpture gallery.
