Repurpose / Refurbish
Yes. I’m a “Trekkie“, and am not ashamed to admit it. I’m also a design nerd that can appreciate the “out of this world” attention to detail in today’s “Room of the Day”. With warm, dark wood vaulted ceilings and a juxtaposed (and exposed) array of beams that both mimic and echo the arch of the transom windows, it’s no wonder we miss the classic French doors at first glance. Clearly, this is not a room of the future, but certainly its arches are analogous to the architecture of the ‘Enterprise’ bridge (see below). All in all, this space is all about looking up to these beautiful beams…now do you get it, Scotty?
