A couple from Chicago with adult children.
Our goal was to maintain a historic integrity, while creating functional spaces and clean, modern aesthetic. It was fascinating, as walls came down, to find layers of vintage wallpaper and muslin, as well as flattened cardboard boxes that had been nailed to the wood structure as a form of insulation… we literally unpeeled layers of history in this old home. Details such as locally made light fixtures with gem-shaped LED lights (a nod to Park City’s history in silver mining) and a modern wine room design fuse the 19th and 21st centuries.
This was a historic Miner’s home in Park City’s historic Old Town, originally built in 1895. The floor plan was very odd and dysfunctional and prior renovations were quite bizarre (think Hugh Hefner meets historic Park City). The major challenge was fully gutting and renovating the structure, while preserving specific architectural elements and adhering to the very strict design guidelines of Park City’s Historic Preservation Board.
