Enjoy this eye candy – kitchens, baths, porches – created by SCOUTED Architecture | Construction | Graphic Designers, Alloy. Let them inspire you… They’ve got me dreaming of my next renovation project (well two – I want that blackboard wall in my kitchen and a new shower!), and I know Alloy will be the team I trust to bring this vision to life.
ALLOY BEGAN IN 2006 WHEN DAN ZIMMERMAN AND ZACH SNIDER, WHO WERE WORKING INDEPENDENTLY IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA, MET ONE ANOTHER. ZIMMERMAN DESIGN|BUILD AND IRONS CONSTRUCTION STARTED HELPING ONE ANOTHER ON PROJECTS AND DISCUSSING THE POSSIBILITY OF FORMING A PARTNERSHIP. IT WAS A GOOD MATCH, TWO PEOPLE INTERESTED IN GROWING A BUSINESS WITH DIFFERENT YET COMPLIMENTARY SKILL SETS AND A SHARED VISION. ALLOY WAS LAUNCHED OFFICIALLY ON THE FIRST DAY OF 2007 WITH TWO EMPLOYEES AND A SMALL PICKUP TRUCK. NOW, IN 2012, ALLOY HAS GROWN TO ELEVEN EMPLOYEES, ADDED AN INTEGRATED GRAPHIC DESIGN DEPARTMENT, BUT HAS KEPT THAT SAME OLD PICKUP.
Park Street Renovation: This garage was built using the same material palette to match the style of the main house but set back enough not to detract from it. With large sliding barn doors on the back, it opens up to allow for bicycle riding and doubles as a pavilion for outdoor entertaining and birthday parties.
The clients wanted to utilize their dark, unfinished basement that had major water infiltration and moisture issues. A previously unusable space was transformed into an exercise room, family room and complete guest suite.
Montrose Avenue Renovation: The clients approached us with an addition that was falling down and a 1950’s kitchen that needed upgrading. The addition was enlarged to include a larger bathroom, laundry room and small mudroom.
The bathroom has exposed joists and clerestory windows bathing the whole room in natural light while allowing for privacy. The same tile was used throughout but in multiple scales creating interesting textures while maintaining a congruent palette.
Nellysford Mountain Cottage: This was a dramatic, full home renovation project converting a 1970’s vinyl siding covered house into a cozy, mountain lodge retreat with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A large wrap around porch was added as well as a beautiful screened in porch for the enjoyment and full appreciation of the surrounding landscapes.
The overall layout of the house remained relatively unchanged with new elements introduced, such as stone for the prodigious fireplace, uniquely finished reclaimed wood paneling and a residential elevator.
Saint Charles Court bathroom renovation: For this project we finished out the renovation which had been started by another company. We added a window in the shower and put in a soaking tub. Penny tiles create an interesting contrast to the calm, smooth finish of the tub and subways tiles. The niche wall was built with warm toned cedar and accented with Carrera marble to tie back into the other colors of the room.
Tyree Lane kitchen renovation: The clients were interested in improving the layout and functionality of their existing kitchen. The kitchen is the central space of their home and much family life is focused there. Attention was given to creating ample yet unobtrusive storage. We installed soapstone countertops and created an accent wall with hardwood veneers and aluminum trim.
Rutledge Avenue Renovation: The clients had downsized into a smaller house and approached us to redesign the kitchen and great room.
