Bold, extensive overhangs — great for providing relief from the summer sun — created an interior gloom that didn't quite do this Mid-Century Modern home justice. A gut-remodel with strategic skylights and fresh materials that paid homage to the original design's roots made quick work of any flaws. The transformed house achieves enviable lightness and airiness, with even greater emphasis on its iconic style.
The old floorplan was segmented by a central bedroom that restricted the flow of light and foot traffic to the rest of the house.
Bringing more natural light into the space was a must. We removed excess inner walls and installed skylights in all the right places to make the house feel brighter and leaner.
We achieved an incredibly spacious, inviting final impression without expanding the house's footprint. Key to this was a better utilization of the outdoor space, as well as a more confident mid-century aesthetic.
