The kitchen was relocated to the gallery floor, and the master bathroom replaced it on the lower level, directly adjacent to a living space adapted into the master bedroom complete with fireplace.

The bath includes a steam shower and soaking tub, with polished silver sinks for two.

Skylights throughout the ceiling cast blue light into the space softly, intended for the original artwork. Contemporary high-end cabinetry wrapped with marble surfaces in an e-shaped layout provide every cooking amenity. Farm tables with an additional marble slab allow for entertaining while baking or cooking. Dual sinks for two cooks.

Centering the gallery was a fireplace, located where the new gourmet stove is installed. The new owners wanted the space to function as a salon, a space for discussion of important societal topics. Arts & crafts era detailing, including craftsman lamping and a mission hood with quarry tile and marble full splash establish a gourmet kitchen, catering ready.

Originally the Kanst Art Gallery, the first gallery in Los Angeles, the 1920’s building exhibits classic spanish mission architectural details, such as the circular above window operable vents. Art nouveau drapery fabrics, uplights, wood two-tone gallery tables redefine the original artistic intent.

Salon entertaining accomplished.
