Project: Houston Belfiore Residence Renovation

project details

Our eggersmann Houston team thoroughly enjoys working with Houston luxury interior designer, Jennifer Burgess Loh, and her team. We also enjoy working with clients who are downsizing to Houston high-rise living, a situation that is quickly becoming a trend is our city where high-rise living is relatively new.

 

Our German cabinetry design team collaborated with Burgess Loh and the homeowners who were moving from a large Mediterranean home in an upscale community. Steven Goodman with Goodman Even and Interfin Architecture worked with the homeowners to combine 2 Belfiore units into a generous 11,000 sq ft aerie. The owners selected a blue and gray palette for their new palace in the sky. The cooler hues were a departure from their previous home, but added rich textures of walnut wood floors and trim, Venetian plaster ceilings, and unique wall coverings to add warmth.

 

The large footprint of the combined residences enabled a bountiful kitchen with adjacent prep, cooking, and entertaining areas that met all of the homeowners’ desired storage and functionality for everyday living and hosting. Plus, room for a library, spa room, and craft room in a high-rise…now, that is luxury.

kitchen

The warm dark woods are a striking contrast to the lighter, cooler tones throughout the rest of the home. Its oversized island with built-in dining invites family and friends to enjoy the heart of this home.

wine bar

The whimsical wine cellar area is a completely separate area from the kitchen conveniently located near the terrace with spectacular views. The unique decor and ample seating along with incredible wine selection will make this nook a favorite of every guest. And the attention-grabbing cloud? It’s a light and a speaker for streaming your favorite tunes.

butler’s pantry

For convenience and elegant entertaining, the butler’s pantry provides plenty of additional storage and food prep space.

 

But the design of this more utilitarian space did not skimp on luxury. Glass-front cabinetry, tall vessel sink, exaggerated goose-neck faucet, and multi-light pendant drop create the ultimate butler’s pantry.

 

Truly, a pantry designed to be a destination.

laundry

The laundry room is another utilitarian space that creates a high-end aesthetic for taking care of the chores. Exquisite attention to detail brings an unexpected elegance to the space.

 

The laundry area also added ample cabinetry for additional storage of cleaning products and supplies as well as additional household linens.

her closet

Drawers and hanging space abound in this oversized luxury walk-in closet. To display an extensive purse collection, glass-front cabinetry with built-in LED lighting was used for a very boutique look. Also, she requested a rotating corner tower for her shoes to offer good visibility and easy access.

 

A large central island is full of specialty drawers and an upholstered bench.

his closet

A pipe running floor-to-ceiling in the middle of the his and her wardrobe areas challenged the eggersmann designers. But they creatively integrated the pipe to disappear within the cabinetry without sacrificing wardrobe space.

 

Being Texas, it is not surprising that the homeowner requested a rotating tower for his extensive collection of cowboy hats to protect them and display them for his enjoyment.

master bath

A floating double-vanity separated by a mirror offered functionality and elegance while solving a frequent high-rise renovation problem of where to place the vanity and its plumbing.

 

One special feature of this master bath was the curved make-up vanity that required exceptional craftsmanship by the eggersmann cabinetmakers due to the curves and the finishes.

spa room

Off the master bath is a spa room with all the amenities of the most luxurious of day spas.

formal powder room

Glass, metal, and textures define a calming, peaceful space with all choices designed to give a nod to water and its movement.

library & elegant display cases

The library features an inordinate amount of shelf space and a unique backdrop to the desk area. The hidden entrance to the library and unique shelves for display throughout the home add interest.

craft room

This client loves to wrap gifts, so in her craft room, she wanted to have movable island with clear vertical niches off to one side to store the different kind of wrapping paper.

luxury cabinet installation

Our prospective clients often ask about how our luxury cabinet installation process works so we decided to share some details here for this very large project. Due to the extensive remodel, we ordered and installed the project in multiple phases to coordinate with the overall project. In December 2019, the closets which were the last to be added to the project were the first to be installed.

Then, a few short months later, in March 2020, main kitchen and butler’s pantry came together. The catering kitchen was installed the following April. During that installation, the client decide to add their family room to our scope so we quickly designed and ordered that incomparable media wall and commenced its installation that August.

The project, as expected, took a very long time to come together, but the wait was worth it. The homeowners think so, too!

the team

In addition to phenomenal and deeply talented Andrea Smith team and Kegan along with the entire Dallas eggersmann design and installation staffs, there were many people who helped overcome the multiple challenges during this renovation.

Not only architectural challenges that come with any large-scale renovation of an older home, but also and most significantly, the COVID-19 pandemic.

One very special contributor was Julie Dykema and The To-Done List crew. They honed in on every organizational opportunity to make the photo shoot shot by Dan Piassick come out perfectly! We are ready for Andrea’s next big project.
