Untouched since 1958, light channels were sliced through the dark interior in this complete remodel. Without expanding the footprint, the now airy 5-bedroom truly embodies the openness and flow with the outdoors that Mid-Century homes aspire to.
A vintage Eames chair set the palette for this beloved Mid-Century Modern house. Vintage wall covering and a cabinet were preserved and re-used. The plan was opened up to improve the flow and access the expansive views, both out and in.

This pink stucco special asked for a total renovation. Cedar siding warmed the streetscape as does the 24 foot long planter box. In the rear a one story popout provides a garden suite below and a roof deck for the LDK above.
We designed an additional 1200 square feet to this workman’s cottage built in 1882. The existing house had 1800 square feet and the design vastly improved the layout as well. There is a rear two story addition and a further extended 1 story addition with roof deck and lower level master suite.
