Enthusiasts of Mid-Century Modern design, the owners of this home were seeking to highlight its original architecture and aesthetic. The home had been previously remodeled in a way that covered many of the original design features. The clients did not have an architect for this project and chose to put their trust in us to fine tune and execute their strong vision. The result was an extremely successful collaboration.
This unique home was constructed in the early 1960’s and is built entirely of steel, concrete blocks and aluminum framed glass. Previous owners had covered all of the interior and exterior steel with wood, concealing the essence of the design. We worked with the clients to develop a plan for exposing all of the steel as well as the original acoustic panel ceiling. The result of exposing the steel was a dramatic and exciting transformation. The entire main living space was stripped back, the original concrete slab that housed the homes radiant heat system was set with a modern large format tile, the existing fireplace was redesigned as a brick feature wall with hand-made brick and the kitchen was transformed into an incredible minimalist design with a strong influence from Scandinavian modern aesthetics. We worked with the clients to create entirely custom cabinets that have integrated pulls in rift white oak.
