Adding a primary bedroom, laundry room and entertainment space were the main drivers to our clients needs. They envisioned light and open spaces that easily flowed from room to room - all the while keeping true the the mid-century modern roots that they loved.
The existing home definitely had the some wonderful mid-century modern design details both inside and out, but the home was basically a long rectangle that packed in spaces which really didn't make a lot of sense. In addition the rooms were small and closed-in. Our clients were looking to not only update finishes, but also to open up the home with light and airy spaces that made visual sense and stayed true to their love of mid-century modern design.
Key design drivers:
Although this home had some mid-century modern exterior and interior design features, the basic shape was pretty un-interesting. Our designer knew that an addition was necessary, but he didn't just want to add another rectangular box onto the existing rectangular box. By adding a clerestory "level" onto the back of the home it not only added a unique exterior perspective to the new addition, but also allowed for loads of natural daylight to pour into both the new and old spaces.
The renovation addition included:
Adding onto an existing mid-century modern home to add form and function while keeping true to the original aesthetic of the home is no small task. With our clients passion for the architectural aesthetic, this home has been transformed — adding function and form that will allow our clients to enjoy this home for many years to come.
