The article focused on opening up your indoor spaces using these tips:
1. Go Big With Your Moves
Think about ways to open up space in your house by taking out walls or rooms. “Remove something or give up something to let in more light and create more connectivity,” says Feinmann, who encourages homeowners to try out big ideas.
2. Deftly Define Spaces
“Keep the spaces [in your home] defined so they don’t bleed into each other,” Feinmann says. Even with an open floor plan, you still want people to feel comfortable and cozy.
3. Spotlight Gathering Places
Add windows and light to create spaces where family and guests will want to gather. Adding a wall of windows and glass doors can completely brighten the room. A two-tiered central island can offer extended seating for welcome guests.
Feinmann’s award-winning Master Bath renovation was featured in the Boston Sunday Globe, Address section, on October 18, 2015. Part of the Urban Fusion project that combined two Boston units into one, tasteful, spacious and well-functioning condominium. The original kitchen and bath of one unit were transformed into the new master bathroom. An elegant curved wall (whose origins derived from the necessity of keeping an existing plumbing wall intact) allows passage from the front vanities to the tub and shower area.
The clean and simple kitchen designed and built by Feinmann in a historic Cambridge home is featured in the Home Design section of The Boston Globe. Writer Jaci Conry captures the essence of the Bauhaus Landmark Renovation project in her article.
How to transform a tiny, historic bathroom into a modern marvel for you or your kids. Our award-winning Arlington, MA master bath is featured in the Summer 2013 edition of Well Styled Home Kitchens & Baths.
When husband and wife game pros revamp their home kitchen, the result is something extraordinary. The color scheme is purposefully restrained, to stand the test of time; a red Le Creuset Dutch oven that the couple owns influenced their choice of accent color.
To create the new master bath for this growing Arlington family and their stately Victorian home, Feinmann architect Kert Heinecke reallocated space from the existing family bathroom and an underutilized closet. The results are an updated family bathroom, an award-winning master bathroom and happy clients. Read more about the transformation in the Design New England article Bath: Give and Take.
Natural light and backyard views are center stage in this award-winning kitchen renovation featured in the 2012 Premier Issue of Real Kitchens. The client desired a simple update and ended up with a beautiful, well-functioning kitchen that feels like a “Garden Room.”
Like many of the other wide, low-slung homes that sprouted across suburbia after World War II, Mark and Melba Chin’s 2,000-square-foot Lexington MA ranch had a cramped kitchen, low ceilings, and a long central hallway that blocked natural light and created a warren of dark rooms.
