Built in the early 1800s, this building was originally the Jockey Club for the Fair Grounds Race Track. The project encompassed full interior design services for most of the house, design for an auto covering, reconfiguration of the bathrooms, design and built of the custom furniture pieces and addition of solar panels. The client’s primary goal was to upgrade the building to serve a contemporary lifestyle while maintaining its historical significance. The cantilevered auto cover design emerged from zoning restrictions preventing construction within 10’ of the property line, forcing NANO to think creatively to maneuver around the codes to meet the client’s needs. LED tape lights run between steel angles creating a striking line of light that highlights the design’s contemporary construction. Custom furniture pieces include the entertainment unit in the living room and vanity in the master bath. The light fixtures in the living room were custom pieces made from the salvaged batten strips from the second floor of the home.
