This is my own home — a very old worker’s bungalow in historic Takoma Park. The first floor is devoted exclusively to my sculpture studio. A ground floor addition and basement remodel resulted in light-filled garden living.
Exposed steel beams and columns marry beautifully with the more traditional elements in the windows and moldings.
The living space is small — less than 12 x 12 — but feels much larger because of the views into the garden. Aluminum shelving, by Rakks, provides both shelving for books and for display.
The flooring is acid-stained concrete with embedded radiant heating.
The kitchen is a galley kitchen set a foot above the living area – under 8ft ceilings. The kitchen counters are Formica laminate (Sequoia Soapstone), the cabinets are cherry, the backsplash is formed of copper panels with a custom patina. The surrounding panels are mild steel. The open shelving is aluminum shelving by Rakks.
