Larchmont Media Room & Cabana
Larchmont, New York - 2006-9
The owners of this spacious home wanted their basement to be an enjoyable destination, not the undefined but functional space it was. The project started with the Cabana, and after its successful completion the client asked AKA to create a Media Room.
AKA added character and built-in versatility, thus setting the stage for years of family fun:
- A Play Area and Play Room were reconfigured into a Media Room and future Study Room.
- Pool friendly amenities that function like a Cabana were inserted where the basement Weight Room was located.
- A romantic oasis was created in an underused under-deck Sitting Area.
