To start, Beaumont gutted the interior and exposed the wood ceiling trusses, creating a generous sense of space in the 1,040-square-foot layout. The second bedroom then received two custom steel-and-glass doors which can be folded back flat to enlarge the main living and entertaining space.
A pony wall separating the principal bedroom was then topped in glass, which stretches all the way to the roof deck, in order to enhance the overall sense of space while still creating separation.
Beaumont left the original block walls and floor exposed and painted all the drywall black for strategic contrast. Additional black accents, including the kitchen's cabinets, counters, and appliances, and even the roof deck's spray foam, creates rhythm and unity, while a custom maple vanity, Ipe wood shower floors, and select furniture pieces bring warmth.
1905 E Palmcroft Drive is on the market for $344,900. For more information, visit the site here.
