Downtown Louisville


IMGP4609This home was a design-build project for a family in the historic part of downtown Louisville.  The family wanted to maximize size and lot efficiency while staying aesthetically appealing within the stringent historical design requirements.  The project was constrained by height limits, footprint size, finished square footage maximums, bedroom maximums, and roof pitches among other things.  Within its creative design, this home features 10′ main floor and basement ceilings, a round staircase, and compound vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms.  Its elegant white trimmed columns, wainscot, bead board, and beams stand out across dark hardwood floors and railing.  The open floor plan of the home flows through a Great Room with a faux brick fireplace into a kitchen utilizing  induction cooking and built-in nook seating.  In the basement, a bookshelf door hides a wine room next to a bar and recreational room area.  Circular ceiling soffits match round walls and flooring concepts.   The back room of the basement contains a climbing wall for the kids.  You can see our initial rendering and the final product in these two pictures.  See all of the pictures from the project below.IMGP4605Front Elevation 8.4.2014
