Midtown Phoenix Transitional Modern
Moving from their suburban home, our clients were ready for the vertical, lock and leave living afforded by their newly constructed Midtown Phoenix brownstone. Not afraid to take on the immense task of designing the residence entirely by themselves, they were able to take the empty shell and create a truly personalized home.
End Unit – Being an end unit, this residence has a few extra features not included in other residences located in the project. On the exterior, the residence features a set of turrets, an outside staircase to the basement, and a number of extra windows that allows for a lot of natural light into the home. Inside, the home provides additional space with unique circular walls.
Master Bathroom – The master bathroom is home to many unique and subtle features. The master shower tile is leathered marble and includes an accent row consisting of the bathroom floor tile. AFT created a frosted shower shield to install over the window located inside the shower to protect the window’s wood frame and provide privacy while still letting in natural light. As another design detail, our client chose to create a mirror surround using the same Cambria quartz countertop material.
Owner-Designed – Our clients served as their own designers on the entire home taking great care in their decision making. The fireplace in the second-floor great room features a row of agates that our clients had collected over time and wanted to incorporate into the natural granite fireplace surround. Each agate was hand selected and laid out by our client to create the unique, personalized design feature. In choosing paint colors, our clients utilized slightly different shades of color in the same room to create a gradient effect without the requirement of special lighting. In the kitchen, our clients opted to incorporate brass trim into the backsplash. In addition to a singular horizontal row that separates the vertically laid tile on the bottom from the horizontally laid tile above, the brass trim is used to “frame in” the herringbone backsplash behind the gas range.
AFT Construction was able to transform this empty shell into a home that is full of personal and unique features.
