A young, growing family purchased the home in a beautiful, established neighborhood, with the goal of remodeling and updating it in a way that respects its roots in an engaging way, while preserving its best assets.
The interior space has been strategically reorganized, including transforming an existing indoor pool space into the heart of the family home, the main living space. Paying homage to the home’s roots, the brick from the former indoor pool has been reclaimed in various places, including in a striking fireplace that becomes the center of the home’s living space. The repeating brick patterns are used throughout the house, both internally and externally, and are used in such a way that further connects the indoors with the outdoors.
Access to outdoor space has been reactivated, with new landscaping intentionally connecting interior and outdoor spaces. The verticality of the new, dark siding mimics the surrounding mature trees on the site, allowing the home to blend in with the site in an intentional and thoughtful way.
The house successfully combines functionality, flexibility, and adaptability into a modern, clean, and open context.
