The Farnham residence was originally built in the 1940s, with a warren of small dark rooms at its core. We reconfigured the plan to create more generous light-filled spaces, including a rejuvenated foyer, expanded dine-in kitchen, and updated master suite with a walk-in closet, spa-like bath, and vaulted ceiling. The large open spaces support the clients’ current lifestyle, but can be easily adapted to accommodate future changes and frequent family gatherings. New pocket doors and added bathrooms throughout the home unobtrusively provide comfort and privacy for overnight guests. And as the owners mature, we ensured their house will follow, adding space for a future elevator and other features designed to make this a true forever home.
NANO worked to incorporate both clients’ styles, leading to the eclectic feel of the home,’ says Ivy Leleux, Designer at NANO. ‘We incorporated pieces from local artisans and tradesmen, original family furniture, new designer pieces and custom pieces. A lot of the inspiration came from the clients’ personal style as well as their extensive art collection.’”
“‘No stone was left unturned when it came to this project,” says Kristine Kobila, senior architect and QA/QC design director at NANO. ‘Every detail was accounted for, speaking to NANO’s motto, Detail at Every Scale. Our goal was to transform the original floor plan to accommodate the next generation of family members and continue the family’s history with their home. By putting their faith in NANO, the Mosses allowed us to transform and modernize their home to meet the current and future needs of their family, making this project particularly rewarding. NANO’s new design maintains the original integrity of the house, and, through intentional and thoughtful design, is now tailored for the future.’”

“Not only do the clients value architecture, but they have been open to the possibilities involved in this substantial renovation of their family’s historic home. They trusted NANO’s design process, allowing a more modern, open floor plan to be integrated within the historic home.”
