The TV lounge occupies the center of the basement space. “The ductwork forced us to have a lower ceiling height in this area,” of about 8 feet high, Gallagher says. It made sense to place the lounge in the spot with the lower ceiling because people will be seated in here and the feel is meant to be cozier anyway. Placing the TV lounge in the center of the floor plan also made sense for the flow from room to room.
In the pingpong room and the gym, the ceilings are 9 feet high. Gallagher was able to drop soffits around the edges of the pingpong room’s ceiling to accommodate the ductwork while keeping the rest of the ceiling higher.
