FEATURED PROJECTS

Dance Club/Catering Hall Remodel

“The Coliseum” is the most popular dance club/catering hall in White Plains, Westchester, NY. Formally “Prophecy”, the establishment was completely renovated with a new theme. It Includes floor to ceiling authentic Roman style columns, a translucent Arctic White corian bar top (by Superior Fabrications) and arched mouldings. Owners Dan Coughlin and Josh Mazzetti had a vision of a Roman style dance club/catering hall with a modern twist. There is an emphasis on multicolored LED lights reflecting off a club completely painted in high gloss white.

Gothic Architectural Remodel

The project began with a Gothic style bookshelf on the second floor of the house. Inspired by this piece, the clients decided to remodel the entire wing in that style. Full renovation included: leaded windows, hand-cut limestone fireplace, hand carved beams and trusses. In addition, the staircase was replicated using an existing design in the house. Pine and birch were dyed and stained to match.

The Classic Country Kitchen

Kristina Conte needed to rebuild the kitchen in her circa 1830 Colonial in Yorktown, New York, for practical reasons: her husband, Robert, uses a wheelchair and couldn't get through the narrow doorway. But it was a flight of fancy that inspired the room's design. "My husband really wanted a La Cornue stove," she says. "So we started with that."

The blue-porcelain-enameled, brass handled La Cornue range is a massive piece of equipment. Almost five feet long and weighing about six hundred pounds, it has separate gas and electric ovens, since gas is better for bread and meat, and electric is better for cakes. Here is how the range was accommodated into the design:

Designer Holly Ross of Ossining, New York, moved the stove into the room, then built walls and cabinets around it. "it's not like any appliance that fits through a regular doorway," she says.

To suit the old world look of the stove and fit into the decor of this antique house, everything in the kitchen was custom-made by top craftsmen, from the wood trim on the windows to the pale-green cabinets with a Mogul arch design that Conte had noticed in an English magazine.

Old-fashioned details like a pressed-tin cornice and wall covering and a soapstone sink complete the timeless appearance.
