It is situated directly across the street from another notable building with hints art deco design, the Kenmore Municipal Building, which was constructed in the same year.
Description from Mim Design:This Art Deco residence had some beautiful period features that we wanted to complement and accentuate, which lead us to the striking and dramatic monochromatic colour palette.
But it was the perfect colour for this black and white homage to art deco.
The art deco home on Delaware Road near the Kenmore Municipal Building was designed by prominent Buffalo architect Duane Lyman.
The period rooms became somewhat of a retreat for the client, with a focus on mood and deluxe details.
The same high level of detail and finishing was applied to the rear contemporary space, but with a lighter and more casual feel.
The sitting and dining room were designed to have a strong relationship with each other; original, beautifully detailed Art Deco double doors leading into these rooms off the hallway were refinished and framed with custom joinery portals to create depth to the aperture.
Layering of portals was a key theme created throughout different spaces of the house.
Soft grey walls with black framing and window shutters portray a deluxe bedroom setting.
The floor and walls of the ensuite where lined with straight cut Ocean Blue Travertine adding to the premium feel of the bathroom.
The kitchen was re designed as the anchor of the house connecting the original home and the more recent extension.
This companyhas brought back the original designs that have decorated homes and businesses throughout the years.
The monochromatic palette was continued in the kitchen, where black and white hues turned to glossy 2pac, polished stone and black mirror bringing a clean line contemporary feel.
The kitchen looks down over the living area, for this we created an integration of finishes and shapes into the lower living room zone.
The living room was once a waiting room, a hall closet was once a receptionists counter and one large bathroom and laundry room was once two smaller bathrooms.
The black glass splashback and kitchen bench top extends across the living area to become the top of the living room joinery unit, and the dark timber portal extends down the staircase to the living room floor.
