Phoenix Rising

Post-Fire Reconstruction Meets Modern Luxury

“Phoenix Rising” stands as an inspiring testament to the power of transformative reconstruction after a devastating fire. The owners approached Teakwood with a simple ask: to connect them to restore their prized great room light fixtures, salvaged pieces that had been part of a historic Saratoga Springs hotel. Driven by the vision to restore the farmhouse’s historic beauty, a plan was devised to breathe new life into the 20-year-old dwelling from its soot-and-water-laden foundation.

A Symphony of Restoration

Balancing tradition and modern styles, the project honors the original layout, enriched by contemporary updates. The kitchen’s breakfast nook now serves as a sunlit dining and sitting area, extending to an al fresco entertainment space complete with a built-in grill. The reconfigured kitchen has an inviting eat-at centerpiece, while the great room showcases cherry millwork and built-ins. Throughout, a revitalized palette of playful and vibrant colors mirrors the family’s lively creativity and spirit.

Legacy and Renewal

After nearly two years of emotional labor and meticulous craftsmanship, “Phoenix Rising” stands as a space for shaping new memories within the old. Teakwood transformed tragedy into triumph and this phoenix, reborn from the ashes, reclaims its pastoral peace as a haven for creating lasting legacies.
