Custom Capabilities JAMES JUSTICE, DARLENE JUSTICE and TRACY PHELPS Architectural Justice, Medina, OH A great showroom design directly reflects the capabilities and specialties of the company it represents. The latest renovation at the 10,000-sq.-ft. Architectural Justice Design Center leaves no doubt as to the company's custom capabilities and out-of-the- box creativity. Presenting two updated kitchen displays, a new bath display and a masculine office/man cave, designers James and Darlene Justice, along with designer Tracy Phelps, used stone, wood, metal and other natural materials to showcase their specialty – how natural materials can come together to create a one-of-a- kind space. The updated spaces also display the firm's custom capabilities from its on-site artisan shops. Because the setting is a converted barn, and a number of the displays have rustic and traditional elements, incorporating more contemporary displays was a challenge. More challenging, how- ever, was creating the custom pieces that they had envisioned for the displays. The first kitchen features a modern industrial vibe, with sleek frameless cabinetry with open shelving, a metal display cabinet and a custom live-edge dining table. The second kitchen space incorporates an updated Wolf range wall display that went from traditional to contemporary. Here, custom matte-black cabinetry is paired with custom-designed floating shelves on each side of a custom zinc range hood. Countertops in the kitchens include Midnight Mist honed granite, Calacatta Valley quartzite; Branco Cinzento marble and Sahara Noir marble, with Calacatta Valley Quartzite backsplash. A Kohler Stages sink is also on display, paired with a Brizo Litze faucet with a Matte Black and Luxe Gold split finish. Two existing bathroom shower vignettes were taken down and replaced with one new glamorous space designed to show off the company's exotic marble and stone fabrication expertise. On display is a barrier-free shower of Branco Cinzento marble, featuring Brizo's H2O Kinetic and Levoir Raincan showerhead in Luxe Gold. Custom marble trough-style sinks with Brizo's Levoir faucets and ornate metal legs flank each side of the shower. A large Avalon concrete tub from Native Trails is also showcased. Marble is also on display in the new man cave space. Providing a major 'wow' factor is an African Marble Shuffleboard table and Ping Pong table, among other items.
