1904 QUEEN ANNE VICTORIAN IN THE NORTHWEST DISTRICT
This home is near and dear to ARCIFORM’s heart. Years ago we worked with the first owners, remodeling most of the home. More recently, we helped the second owners add their personality and additional functionally to the home. During both phases we enjoyed a mutual appreciation of classic architecture, art and international design.
The house had been remuddled in years past, and ARCIFORM had to not only make the ‘80s addition code-compliant, but also tie it into the original architecture of the home. The original finishes, the systems and the fixtures had to be restored, replaced or refinished to make this beautiful home shine again. Wallpaper, modern and antique furnishings and fixtures, art and mementos make this house a home.
The attempt at making this Victorian into a modern home in the ‘80s was reversed, and we created a beautiful, classic kitchen without losing the open sense of space. Custom-built cabinetry by Versatile Wood Products includes an island with 36” deep drawers and ¼” stainless steel counters, making it as much functional as it is a show-stopper.
The large-patterned sea thistle wallpaper makes the tiny space so much fun.
The remodel included a major reconfiguration of the back half of the second floor. We turned one of the bedrooms into the master bathroom, featuring a pedestal tub, an antique cabinet turned into a vanity, a walk-in shower and vaulted ceilings.
ARCIFORM added architectural details to the new master bedroom, which overlooks the city from a cozy sitting area.
In the basement, a custom lounging sofa built by Versatile Wood Products creates a cozy corner near the gas fireplace, added to provide warmth in the space intentionally left unfinished to expose concrete walls and ceiling joists. A new bathroom shares a glass block wall with the rest of the space for light and for its cool texture.
