Ash+Ash – Interiors

We designed Ash+Ash to integrate contemporary architecture with LEED Platinum-certified, high-performance sustainable design. The building is composed of white stucco planes with glass and cedar infill panels that float above a dark brick base. Deep cedar soffits at the home’s porches extend above the glass forming rich interior spaces. Rift cut white oak used extensively throughout the interior is complemented by a cantilevered walnut stair to the rooftop viewbox and terrace. Interior wall surfaces are lit with recessed LED fixtures for display of artwork throughout. Eureka Calacatta marble and quartz counters are offset against soft grey marble tile on the entry and kitchen floors. Simple white marble floors and walls in the baths and grey marble in the powder room establish clean backgrounds for glass tile feature walls. An Art Deco-era crystal chandelier and other items collected by the owners — an antique grand piano, a range of out-of-production Thonet chairs, and three tables designed by the owner — have been mixed with classic contemporary furniture to complement the architecture.
