A comprehensive complete overhaul residential project that involved kitchen relocation and re-configuring the open loft space to create a master suite and an office with their own identity. The project offers an interesting insight on the use of glass in residential architecture as a viable building and decorative material.

The project features:
  • A state of the art Salvarani kitchen with glass folding door upper cabinets and integrated appliances, blue granite counter tops, and glass back wall
  • Casali glass structures that serve as wall and room dividers with sliding doors and a custom engraved office wall partition
  • Tech Lighting monorail lighting system
  • FEG wrap-around walk-in closet with integrated dressers and wenge components
  • Modulnova suspended wood veneered vanities with Carrara marble counter top & square Carrara marble vessels
  • Modulnova mirrored front flap door medicine cabinets
  • De Majo glass lighting throughout

Here is how our clients describe their project: 

'Our goals were to integrate and enhance the industrial loft form with functional privacy, while conveying elegance, spaciousness and light.  The translucent Casali design realized our architectural desire for clean and seamless transitions between spaces that alternately engage or isolate.  We are ecstatic with the finished product that inspires us day and night.  Without SV the end result would not have been possible.'
