The home’s curb appeal was updated by installing a new entry door and sidelights; new windows, including an enlarged opening for the second-floor living room; new fiber cement siding for the upper level; and a new garage door. The designers focused on increasing transparency and accentuating the horizontal character of the simple form.
Upon entering the home, guests feel the openness of the spaces, each with their own personality. This open concept design, though, creates a functional flow throughout the house and allows guests and family members in one space to still keep a connection with guests and family members in another, bringing them all together.
A mixture of materials gives the exterior of this midcentury-modern home visual interest and appeal. Frosted glass offers light and privacy for the home office, while rich brown siding creates a compelling sense of warmth.

A new walkway was added to the street instead of having to come up the driveway. Heavy trim around the entry, garage door and new living room windows helped balance the façade.
This midcentury-modern home was remodeled in a way that retained its original character. The driveway, made of concrete pavers and black river stones, is designed to feel more like an entry court than a place to park your car.
In the backyard of this midcentury modern home, planter boxes line the windows and the landscaping is kept simple, yet elegant. Limestone decking leads the way to the narrow, elongated pool complete with lounge chairs and a spa for relaxing and enjoying the view.
This corner home office makes ample use of a small space with built-in shelves and two sleek white cabinets with a matching desk. Gray and white geometric wallpaper lends a funky, midcentury modern vibe, while polished concrete floors complete the look of the space.
