The spectacular pool intersects with the house and stretches into the living area with a wonderful U-shaped deck offering plenty of space for outdoor parties and a relaxing sojourn.
To ensure that privacy is not an issue it is the lower level that contains the bedrooms and other living quarters and even here one sees the presence of cleverly placed floor-to-ceiling glass windows to offer a glimpse of the world outside.
The floor plan inside was revamped removing unnecessary partitions and creating more room for the new entry living area and other public spaces. The color scheme is neutral with a white backdrop being energized by exposed wooden ceiling beams and rustic surfaces that usher in ample visual and textural contrast.
Custom crafted credenzas bespoke décor and smart utilization of space transform the old residence completely while a reworked floor plan does away with unnecessary partitions. Elegant clutter-free and cozy the remodeled home brings together the best of Eichler design and modern functionality.
As is the case with most modern renovations it is large sliding glass doors that get the job done with the new rear of the residence getting a large window with a distinct black frame. Despite this beautiful makeover not everything here is brand new with the exterior brick façade and striking features like the fireplace in the living room being preserved carefully.
An extension and renovation project that saw a semi-detached home sitting amidst a row of classic terrace houses in London brings modernity and cheerful elegance to what was once a dark and mundane residence.
Built in 1962 the house was too crowded visually unengaging and uninspiring for its new owners who turned to Klopf Architecture for help. The idea behind the complete makeover was to give the home a new contemporary and cheerful ambiance while retaining as much ‘Eichler flavor’ as possible.
