Work performed including adding a “family” room and modern kitchen addition to the Wieboldt mansion for Rom & Tina Schmidt. The two-story great hall is framed by heavy timber trusses. The kitchen was updated from a traditional gallery kitchen & pantry into a meeting and gathering space as well as a food preparation space. Through the use of limestone walls, the exterior of the addition was designed to blend seamlessly with the tudor-design of the original house, and a large outside terrace with a classic limestone rail was also added to blend the indoors with the outdoors.
The small two-story house is an experiment in fragmentation and color theory. The angled red platform supports a sleeping loft which functions to the roof structure together. The colors were selected to change throughout the day.
This project involved the interior remodeling and redecorating of various areas within this North Shore residence to accommodate the family’s changing life-style. For such areas as the dining room, foyer, living room, and master bedroom and bath, Mekus Tanager selected new furniture and furnishings, as well as new lighting, interior window treatments, carpeting and architectural details.
