When the townhouse was designed and built in the mid-1970s, it won awards and got a lot of media attention for being state-of-the-art for materials and technology. But new owners wanted to update it to fit their needs for a European contemporary environment. Limestone floor tiles replaced the original porcelain tiles, and the color scheme was changed from earth tones to soft grays with bright accents. The original fireplace didn’t function well. It was replaced with a new unit, and a custom gray and yellow marble surround was fabricated and installed. The beams and rough cedar ceiling were sanded and stained a soft gray, and new dimmable lighting was installed to enhance the remodeled living room.
