Simplicity, functionality and durability were the guiding mantras for this re-build. Originally a low slung ranch with a mid-century modern feel, the massing was pulled up and out to create a crisp, clean and more modern version of its former self. The house bridges two families merged into one where everyone has their separate space while main areas work to bring everyone together. Deliberate placement of contrasting textures and materials create an organic and warm modern feel. Additions to the front and back define exterior areas with the rear yard featuring a large entertainment patio for groups of all sizes while the dark black exterior acts as canvas for bright new landscaping.
