In a collaboration with Man Architecture (Brooklyn, NY: man-a.net), the Blue Truck studio injected a modern agenda into a subdued suburban residence. The original sprawling layout was re-organized by a multivalent walnut Cabinet Core that is punctuated by nodes of provocative color and chimneys of light. The Cabinet Core divides public and private, hides storage spaces and rooms (a vestibule, a pantry, a bathroom), and provides the backbone for a new integration of technology. The extensive interior remodel also included a state-of-the-art kitchen, revised bathrooms and a re-imagined master suite.
