Private Residence


The kitchen and master suite renovations in this 1911 Georgian Revival brick home were designed with a spacious, classic look in mind. This very large home, originally built for one of the founders of the Columbus Museum of Art, is unique with its masonry-bearing-wall and poured-concrete-floor construction. All renovations were planned in consideration of this unusual residential building system.

The master bath features slab Carrara marble in large planks. Lavatories, mirrors, lighting and finishes are true to the originals in the house.

The kitchen is a combination of many smaller rooms, creating a scale that relates to the larger, gracious living spaces. Historically accurate, flat-panel recessed cabinet doors with a subtle, glazed finish hide modern appliances and conveniences. Many of the visible appliances are vintage commercial equipment, including the large, glass-front refrigerator and Vulcan range. A stone floor and granite counter tops with matching granite slab backsplash lend the space the substantive quality you would expect in this stately home.
