Project Summary

This gentleman’s room in a 100-year old Tudor-style home was built with devoted attention to period detail. An existing guest room was transformed into a room for the gentleman of the house to store, appreciate and care for his collection of guns and other treasured objects. The room was designed with respect for history, restraint and a masculine point of view. The design emphasizes bringing as much natural light into the environment as possible while keeping the overall tone of the room comfortable, subdued and elegant. Cabinetry was meticulously designed to conceal the area where valuables, including a gun collection in a safe weighing almost 1000 pounds, are stored. Detailed wainscoting throughout the room establishes the design’s respect for the character of the home. Entering this gentleman’s room with no modern technology but a dedicated attention to period detail and comfort feels like stepping back in time.
