A computer niche tucked away in the study offers a quiet place to focus. Shelves filled with reference works and inspiring mementos are sure to brighten spirits, when burning the midnight oil.

Pocket doors between the study and living room provide privacy when necessary. Pocket doors, which slide into the wall when fully opened allow a doorway to be completely open without taking up any floor space.

After living in one condo unit for 15 or so years, the homeowners wanted a little more from their home sweet home, so they scooped up the neighbor’s unit when it went up for sale. Then they hired us, award-winning renovation firm Gardner/Fox, to guide them through the design and construction process. Here’s a quick look at what went down.
