Project: Medina Contemporary
Project Description: 3,500 sq. ft Remodel of existing home, including new Kitchen, Pantry and Laundry area off of Kitchen and renovation of Master Suite. Update of all exterior windows, roofing and finishes.
Design Criteria: Remodel of existing mid century modern home, which was in need of remedial work due to lack of maintenance over the years. This included new roofs, exterior siding, electrical, plumbing and windows and doors. Additionally, the home had a very dated aesthetic and the client was interested in modernizing it to being more of an abstracted, sleek and current design.
Design Concept: Modern, minimal, sleek, abstract, strong indoor/outdoor connection and innovative.
Design Solution: We opened up the Kitchen and created a Powder Room and Pantry off of it, with a floating island and wall of glass opposite, to focus it onto the outdoors, as well as back into a small breakfast/family area. All of the main level windows were reworked to have large single fixed windows that were strategically on axis to a focal points in the exterior landscape. Next to these windows are hidden doors in the wall that created access to that area of the yard. The volumes of the exterior architectural forms were also abstracted by removing all embellishment from them and applying a simple white stucco surface.
