A recent office redesign needed some extra planning, as this office space was pulling double duty. Not only was it a place where work was conducted, it was also a spot for the family to spend some quiet time - watching TV or reading.
This is hardly the basement of the past and precisely why it is now referred to as The LowerLevel. We created a special area for spending time together - playing games or watching movies with the kids, having drinks with friends by the bar or playing a round of pool.
The family room is where we gather to watch TV, relax or entertain friends and family. So grab a blanket and cozy up by the fire - this family room is all about unwinding in style.
No longer do sunrooms simply resemble a room for wicker furniture and a cup of coffee. They offer versatility by serving an array of functions all year.
The family room - with it’s relaxed and informal atmosphere - is one of the most important rooms in the house. If family & friends are not gathering in the kitchen, you can usually find them in the family room.

Over the past years our technology has changed so much and the design community has worked hard to keep up. Today’s sleek flat screen TVs just don’t fit in the wall units of yesterday. They are larger and need to be treated as an important design element. To accomplish that goal, I have incorporated several ideas.
As life evolves, our homes sometimes change. While the big house is great for an active family, when the nest is empty, it is nice to have less room and yard to care for.
