k-da was contacted by the client to see if we could transform the lower half of his home from miscellaneous storage into a place to house guests, watch movies, play pool, and generally entertain. Originally, the concept was to create an indoor/outdoor area that would include an outdoor court with bocci and seating, but budget constraints forced the team to focus on the house itself.
k-da looked to maximize the light that this lower level would receive by establishing an axis in line with the large glazed double doors. We divided the space along the axis, starting first with an arrival that would service as a mudroom, and wood storage. The next transitional zone was dedicated to the entry to the guest bedroom and bathroom. Walking down a bit further – we carved out an area for a pool table, along with access to the house storage room. The end piece of the program is the sitting room – framed as its own special area, this nook is both a comfortable place to curl up with a book or watch a movie.
