Built in 1972, this 2,500-square-foot home is located in an active suburban neighborhood, where families know each other and spend time in each other’s homes. The space plan in the 37-year-old home did not accommodate the needs of a young, active family that regularly hosts large gatherings in their home. The homeowners’ driving goal was to create a large, open kitchen and a floorplan that that could host large groups, as well as serve the needs of a growing family.

 

Nearing retirement, this client was ready for her next stage in life, starting with completely remodeling the two-story townhouse where she had lived for 30 years. The goal was to create her post-retirement forever home. The original 1980s fixtures and finishes were a constant eye-sore for the design-savvy client, whose love of travel inspired her preference for bold, modern-European design. Her strong opinion on color was clearly expressed at the beginning of the design process; something that posed a challenge to translate into a cohesive materials palette. Improving flow within the cramped layout of the townhouse was a top priority.

 

The existing ranch style home was not only small for this large family , it also didn't match the owners modern taste. Owners were constantly getting outbid for houses that they liked so they ended up buying a house no one else wanted with the hope of using the money they saved towards future renovations. Design of the new house is minimalist but still has a cozy feeling.It boosts an open floor plan with a large great room. Owner loves the fact that he can be in the kitchen and can still watch their daughter playing in the yard.

Our clients acquired the home from the original owner who built the home himself but never did any upgrades during his period of ownership. As a result, the home needed a lot of deferred maintenance including electrical and mechanical updates to bring it up-to-date to today’s current building standards. In addition, the house was too compartmentalized which made for inefficient circulation. The exterior and interior were aesthetically outdated which was a source of embarrassment for our clients.

 

The clients’ requirements included: refreshing the exterior appearance of the mid-century modern home, improving the entry, replacing and modernizing the kitchen and creating a better family room, relocating the laundry, improving the indoor environment of the courtyard, simplifying interior circulation and creating a more integrated indoor/outdoor connection from the kitchen and dining areas to the patio. Other improvements included remodeling the two existing bathrooms, adding a powder room, adding a pantry area and mudroom, and repairing the radiant flooring.

In this very competitive Bay Area housing market, our clients found this house for a good price and decided to invest in it knowing full well that it needed a lot of improvements. The home had enough bedrooms but was lacking the ideal size for entertaining guest which our clients loved to do. Having a nice space to proudly invite guests over was very important to them and after saving up for a few years they decided it was finally time to upgrade the house before starting their family.

 

Clients requirements: Extra space was required as two families were merging into one home. Client requested to upgrade the façade, to create a contemporary look with an open floor plan to improve flow & bring more natural light. Solution: The exterior remodel introduced design elements that transformed the façade from an outdated ranch style to a new contemporary design. A second story was added to create new rooms with higher ceilings and more natural light. The great room was created to provide more efficient use of space, connecting living areas & opening the house to the outdoors.
