Ranch style house turned modern retreat
The extensive renovation and addition has resulted in a modern, yet historical build. "The only thing we really kept was the brick 'spine' of the house. We wanted to leave that history as part of the home." --Designer.
Main living spaces dominated by 10' sliding doors that open up the whole space to the outside. The interior design for the first floor is meant to calm and restore the occupants after a long day. Using light colors and natural textures to create a sense of comfort and organic peace.
The kitchen was by far the most complicated and crucial part of the home. The kitchen itself is equipped with state of the art appliances, sinks, and specialized cabinet storage.
