110 ash street residence
Residential Renovation 3,122 SF
Starting with a 3,122 square foot home built in 1938, our goal was to bring new life to the space, by creating a sense of openness and connection between the home’s living spaces. We opened the kitchen wall to allow for casual everyday dining and easy access to the dining space for special events and larger gatherings, while bringing a contemporary aesthetic to the living spaces and bathroom. Throughout the project care was given to material selection and finishes to create a cohesive identity within the home.

celebrate the existing
the beauty of reuse
This home in Weston, MA had existing architectural features with tremendous character that the client and Studio Luz wanted to maintain as part of its contemporary reinvention. The home’s sunken living space and playful portal windows give nod to its midcentury origin, while seamlessly integrating into the new space.
home as facilitator for interaction
The owners of 110 Ash St. sought to live in a space made for gathering. Studio Luz removed barriers that closed off casual and formal living spaces with cooking and dining space, creating sight-lines and open spaces within the home perfect that are for large groups, while using bright quality materials that are inviting for everyday family living.
optimizing the home for wellness
Studio Luz worked with landscape architects to relate the family room space to the adjacent garden, allowing for the living space to spill outside, responding to the client’s desire to have unencumbered gathering space. Additionally, converting an existing sun room as a yoga and exercise studio was a key part of the design of this space, giving specific purpose to an empty space for the client to enjoy.
