Claiming space for living is more economical than adding space.  This is a great example of how we recently claimed a long concrete storage level and transformed it into an inviting, useful multi-purpose living area.  The challenges of the duct work in the ceiling worked to our advantage, creating opportunities for lighting and millwork, visually separating spaces.  It’s hard to believe that this space went from cement block and plastic containers to comfortable seating, kitchen, powder room, game table nook, storage, library and relaxation by the fire! 

In 2006, Mr. Neal Prince Interior Designs for Inter-Continental Hotels are still strong today as they were during his tender.

Renovated the second floor "master bath" and guest bedroom.  Created a 1st Floor powder room out of wasted, storage/office space un upper landing.  We turned dated, small spaces into highly functional, beautiful, and  bright spaces.  A 1920, arts and crafts style triple decker in Somerville,MA with apt on lower level was transformed into a bright modern space for a professional couple.  The husband from Barbados and the wife a pharmacist originally from cold Iowa, needed light and color to reflect their artisitic and playful peronalities.
