Joe and Lisa Wolfe found a home in Princeton Junction which would accommodate their growing family. The home needed updating to its 1980’s design. The updates were scattered throughout the house to modernize the function and flow. While each update seemed minor, all of them needed to be tailored to create a unified design that mixed both existing and new elements.
To allow for extended family and guests to visit, they converted a ground floor rec room into a guest suite by adding a new guest bathroom. The new bathroom was equipped with custom cabinetry, and a new tub and steam shower finished with marble and stone tiles. The ground floor laundry room was renovated to function also as a mudroom with a custom bench and storage. Work on the ground floor kitchen consisted of a new wall of custom walnut cabinetry to match the existing with built-in Miele and Sub-Zero appliances. The second floor adapted one of the bedrooms to include a more accessible laundry room. New furnishings were also selected throughout the house to complete the design of each room.
The basement was completely renovated to include a new kitchen, living area, gym, and media room. To suit Joe, an avid Steelers fan, the media room was branded with a custom “black and gold” wall design. The gradient pattern of the Steelers star was created using a digital parametric script covering three walls of the media room.
Future phase of work will include new backyard deck and patio. Construction to be begin in the summer of 2016.
