Remastered contemporary in the Marina district boasts elegant finishes, grand views

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 20:24:57 UT

Vin Leger of EAG Studio believes in creating a look that lasts. He wouldn’t want someone to walk into 268 Mallorca Way 20 years from now and be able to tell a renovation took place in 2017. “We put great effort to using timeless materials,” Leger said. “We don’t want to be too trendy or too flashy, but organic.” EAG Studio accomplishes this by spreading hardwood flooring and built-ins across all four levels. There’s a long string of walnut posts in the living room that act as the staircase’s railing. A walk-in pantry is concealed in the kitchen behind a wooden door, and a tile backsplash adorns the wall above the integrated cooktop.
