Mission-style millwork in bungalow-style home
Our client’s grandfather was the original architect of this house in the Fountainebleau area of New Orleans. After buying the house, the grandson wanted to update the interior space and open up the downstairs area…while staying true to the design concept and spirit of the original house.
Two rooms downstairs were transformed into a double parlor with a room divider. The room divider’s casework was crafted with built in columns and cabinets. Central City Millworks fabricated the millwork and Hal Collums Construction performed the installation.
The flooring was milled to match the original inlays. The rooms are bordered in the contrasting bands of flooring.
The kitchen cabinets include very tall pull-out pantries. And just a couple of steps away from the kitchen’s custom island one see’s a matching custom built-in desk that can be as seen more clearly in the photo below.
In addition to the custom desk, the photo above reveals a few of the custom doors that were installed throughout the home.
And, the final photo in this post displays a paneled bathroom that has a secret. Unseen in this photo is a hidden door. In fact, even were you inside the bathroom the door would still remain hidden…otherwise, it couldn’t rightly be called a hidden door, now could it?
