Luxurious Custom Designed Renovation in McLean, Virginia

Homeowner Challenge:

The challenge for this project was creating a balance between the frequently used larger spaces and the private quarters used for relaxation. The homeowner had very high standards of quality and a preference for custom items from around the world.

The BOWA Solution:

BOWA incorporated the client’s vision and worked collaboratively with the architect and designer to complete a whole home renovation. The result is a spectacular combination of elegance and function.  The main level features a new working kitchen and remodeled spaces for entertainment. The lower level houses a luxurious master suite and bath, guest rooms, and a second kitchen. Many of the renovated rooms are filled with materials from around the world, such as lacquered doors from Hong Kong, mosaic tile from Italy, and a travertine bathtub from Mexico. All furnishings were carefully selected to reflect he client’s vision and unique taste.
