activates an electric drive and the drawer slides out noiselessly. This allows the
drawers to be unfettered by pulls or knobs. In the adjacent dining area is an equally
high-tech media wall where six stacked televisions, easily seen from the kitchen,
can be tuned to individual programming or project one large image.
Lancia also emphasized the city view in her design for the en suite master bath, even though it meant relocating some of the mechanicals. “The original floor plan had the master bath along an interior wall,” says Lancia, who reconfigured the space so that the bed is now along the interior wall and the master bath is a large window-filled space that looks out to the
State House. The bathroom includes a shower stall, which is tiled floor to ceiling
the master suite’s sleeping and bathing zones are
each defined by curves. Designer Julie Lancia created
a curvilinear partition wall (bottom right) for the
bath. The vanity (left), which is handsomely finished
with leather-faced drawers and cabinets and topped
with concrete, snuggly fits the curve of the wall. The
slate shower (top right) features a granite bench and
a rainfall-style showerhead that offers light therapy
with colored LEDs.
