2007 Best Finished Basement

The owners wanted to create a contemporary, urban space with a “loft feel” to help offset the very formal, Georgian nature of the rest of the house. Initially, they wanted to capture that unused space as a place to relax and entertain. Eventually, their plan became to make the room into a media room with a large screen TV and audio equipment. A bar area was created in one corner with stylized, narrow, vertically-oriented, natural maple cabinets and stained concrete counter tops. The tile bar works in harmony with the tile of the fireplace surround to create depth and interest. A focal point of the room is a unique ceiling treatment that was designed by the homeowners. Using a trapezoidal form composed of two contrasting colored triangles, the “bow-tie” element seems to float on the charcoal ceiling, while also housing recessed lights for illuminating the conversation area. The whole space is affectionately called the Tiki Room for its theme of Polynesian artifacts. In contrast to the fun mood of the main space, the bath strikes a mood of Asian, Zen-like calm. The angles fit the contemporary nature of the space, but are held in check by the neutral palette, the pebble flooring and a heavily chiseled wall tile.
