Our design goal for this house was to give it an old warehouse feel with a modernized interior. Think NY bachelor pad. We used flat roof trusses and extensive brickwork on the interior. The lighting in the great room was a novel idea and is supposed to resemble a starry night. The ceiling was painted black and individual bulbs were hung at random locations and lengths. Two different electrical circuits and dimmers allowed for controlling the brightness of the bulbs. When the sun goes down, it offers a very dramatic setting for any occasion.
