This week on Instagram I shared the design plan for the new game room on our Clifton Road project. This time last year we were preparing for the Druid Hills Tour of Homes and for a split second considered tackling the entire terrace level prior to opening the doors to the public.
After walking the job with the general contractor and a few other specialty trades, we decided not to risk starting and not finishing what would turn out to be a more intensive project.
Built in 1927, there’s so much to appreciate about a historic home and it requires lots of TLC (read money $$$$$) to insure that new improvements will seamlessly integrate with the existing home and withstand the test of time.
Currently the terrace level is in use and is already divided into the laundry room, a full bath, home office, and two storage rooms one of which will become the new game room.

The overall concept is dark and moody, but not in the traditional way you’d expect in a basement. This room, like the entire terrace level, will be a sophisticated, yet approachable entertainment hub designed for the entire family. I can imagine all of the game watching, ping pong tournaments, billiard games, and play dates that will happen in the room!!
This series of projects has conceptually been a year in the making and I’m thrilled to finally be in the next phase of bringing the overall vision into fruition. Stay tuned for more updates!
