Rittenhouse Home

After living in their completely renovated brownstone for years, a couple had a desire for a bit more living space. MSD, along with In House Studio Architecture and Hanson General Contracting achieved this by breaking through the exterior of the home and stealing space from the existing backyard garden. Once this was completed, then came the real fun! Custom millwork was designed to fulfill all of our clients’ requirements: a place for the tv, fireplace and dry bar. Storage concealed behind back painted glass hides stemware, hidden refrigeration lives below the bar and the surface the TV is mounted on rotates outward to allow access to TV equipment behind. Walls and an adjacent staircase were clad in the same rift-cut oak as the millwork to tie the room together. The clients’ existing furnishings have just the soft yet sophisticated look needed to juxtapose the crisp, clean lines of the new millwork perfectly. Truly a place for everything.
