Mid-Century Home Remodel 2,000 sf San Mateo, CA 2013
Better than an Eichler! A classic mid-century house with acres of glass merging interiors with front & rear courtyards. This home needed a richness of materials to match the strong geometries, with an expanded, open kitchen to function as the contemporary heart of the home. We hate it when new elements are jarringly plunked into old houses, and this one demanded respectful integration. Tired wall treatments were replaced, a floating pivot door elevates the entry, and buttery waxed oak floors were added over the radiant concrete slab, pulling the new and old together.
