uilt in 1923, this house was typical for this time period with many small, dark bedrooms upstairs sharing one tiny bathroom. A confirmed bachelor for life wanted us to transform the upstairs into one large suite for his enjoyment. We did so by opening up the entire space, except for some of the master bathroom, to bring light in. We exposed the bones of this old house to create an airy loft rich in natural material, masculine and minimalist design by exposing the existing wood rafters, duct work and other existing structural elements.
The Second floor space is completely dedicated to the master suite. The existing walls that previously made up three bedrooms were removed to create one large open master bedroom and lounge area used for private entertaining. With the walls removed, light to floods into from the numerous existing windows. The re-finished existing wood floors make an interesting pattern and show how the removed walls divided the original bedrooms at one time.
For the master bathroom, clean and minimal as well as rich in material is the theme. The glass door into the shower was installed in the location of the original bathroom entrance to create an unencumbered feeling. The glass box shower with glass door that leads back into the open loft which confirms that modesty is not needed in this bachelor's master suite.
