Residential Remodeling Project


Similar to our other remodeling projects, a gut renovation of the duplex residence was carried out giving us the property’s full 3400 sq ft to work with. Getting the project to its shell form was of primary importance in order for us to truly understand the space we had to work with.


Contemporary shaker style kitchen


The kitchen design was beautifully orchestrated to give off an airier and brighter feel to the home. The counter tops in the kitchen are Calcutta gold marble. The marble tops have been installed by KNG construction. The kitchen island possesses smooth curved corners and has been delicately installed to accommodate three stylish counter height bar stools. The kitchen’s wood paneling has been custom made and hand painted with no resulting brush or roller marks present, just a beautiful smooth surface. The kitchen’s cabinet doors have been created with custom welded and fitted architectural metalwork.


The kitchen is bursting with personality and features a beautiful paneled door which has been finished with satin lacquer to give the shaker kitchen a modern twist. The painted finish gives the remodeled kitchen a contemporary.


Ceruse living room built in

One of the living room’s primary focus was the installation of a custom made plaster crown molding. The finely finished ceiling has three different widths.
We wanted the living room to attain a greater degree of warmth and profound energy. All the furniture in the living room has been custom made and built in-house by KNG. This included the cabinet, the bookcase, and the single tv unit. The cabinet millwork has been fabricated from rift oak. The rift oak cabinet has been applied with a ceruse finish (also known as Liming finish). The process brings out the detail of the oak and gives it a modern look.


Elegant Venetian bathroom


The master bathroom has been refined with one of the most authentic Venetian walls finishes around. The Venetian plastering gives the wall an elegant and textured feel. All the bathrooms plastering was done in-house. To complete the bathroom, the beautiful bathroom unit and vanity table were silver-leafed, making the room a place to live in as well as exhibit. KNG installed the marble tile work on the bathroom floor and around the bathtub.


Applying Fine Paints of Europe


The residence office millwork and trim work have been applied with Fine Paints of Europe. The high-quality paint was used in multiple light coats and then sanded down with water. Painting the office millwork and trim work was one of the most lengthy and lavish features of the whole project. After each coat of paint, the trim work and millwork were left to dry for at least 24 hours, before being lightly sanded down and applying the second layer. The process was replicated until we got a rich and smooth finish.


The built in cabinet and furniture pieces were fabricated by KNG’s architectural woodworking shop. The office desk has pieces of mirror fabricated and installed by KNG.


The tile design of the foyer was one of the most striking features in the duplex house. The floor was designed with two different types of material, black absolute and Thassos white. The floor paneling had to be unique chopped by hand to ensure an exclusive finish was achieved.


Bedroom remodeling


Like the living room, the residence’s master bedroom has been furnished with wooden paneling and finished with hand painted oil based paint. Both nightstand tables in the master bedroom are custom made and feature a back painted mirror. The master bed has been custom made and upholstered by KNG.


In the bedrooms dressing room, you will find an elegant cabinet installed and built in by KNG. One of the striking features of the cabinet are the two tabs of antique mirrors. The centerpiece stool has been fabricated by KNG and brought over to the site.
