DETROIT LIVING AND DINING ROOM RENOVATION/USA
For this lovely home that’s located in Detroit, USA, we’ve redesigned the living and the dining room. We listened to our clients’ wants and needs and we designed a space that’s special to them, is enjoyable and wheelchair accessible.
Our clients are a family of four and they have a large number of guests over frequently. The biggest problem of their home before was a dozen of idle chairs around. Instead of these chairs that are only used when there are guests over, we’ve designed a window side bench in the dining room. When our clients are without guests, they will use the dining table for meals. When they have guests over, they will move the table in front of the bench and maximize seating space to seat 10+ people.
We followed a similar design principle across the piano. We’ve combined a window side bench with a specially designed library. In the living room, we’ve designed and placed a shoe rack with a bench top near the living room exit to the garden. For the family dog, we’ve placed a dog bed near the fireplace, where it will feel as part of the family conversations. We’ve chose the living room seating to maximize seating space and used a sectional sofa.
