Contemporary New Hampshire Home
This contemporary New Hampshire home was a complete gut renovation. The clients, now empty nesters, had lived in the house for more than twenty years. They considered downsizing and many options for this next phase of their lives. J. Schwartz Design worked with them to evaluate all of the possibilities and, in the end, the clients opted to transform their home. The most important elements to the clients were: light, views, sight-lines, thoughtfully selected materials, storage, and flow. A crucial space was the kitchen and adjoining eating area and family room spaces. Also key for relaxation was the new master bedroom/ master bath suite. There are many built in storage units throughout the home that serve both functionally and aesthetically. There are numerous European style multi-function windows to let the air and light in and to create beautiful views of the grounds beyond. The entry staircase is an especially appealing, unique composition and the rich woods throughout the home truly represent the strong design values these clients brought to the project. These values are also carried through to the outdoor living spaces including stonework, and landscape design including a soothing water feature.
This is a beautiful, personal, contemporary home that will be a cherished nest for our clients for years to come.
