The comment made by homeowner was "We don't know what to do with this room . . . no one does."
RIOH was presented with the obstacles: small square room, no windows, front door of house was centered on one wall, perplexed homeowner.
The positives points were: natural lighting that flowed in from the front door sidelights, overflow light from adjoining kitchen, ceiling that was pitched and was over 10' high, perplexed homeowner.
Working with the positives and this couples' idea to have an adult space where they could read or work on their computer inspired RIOH's team to keep it simple and functional. Since their four young children had their own playroom and there was a separate family room, the design was simple. We provided comfortable seating to read, a desk for the computer, accents of the beach and a house rule that stated: Adults Only! The end result was cozy.
