Jones House-Silva Studios Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

Jones House is a mid-century modern renovation carried out by Silva Studios Architecture, located high atop Mount Soledad in San Diego, California. The home offers impeccable views to the Pacific Ocean, Mission and San Diego bay, downtown San Diego and Mexico. The home was given modern day updates, new technologies and lifestyle changes to meet the needs of its owners. The whole exterior facade was given a facelift, the landscaping was designed with native species for easy care and maintenance. The previously closed off interiors were structurally altered to give an open plan concept with the living, kitchen and dining areas.

This fabulous chef’s kitchen features ipe wood, custom cabinetry and a cantilevered, 3.5 inch thick concrete counter with a waterborne epoxy and a coat of floor wax (the cantilever is support by a 4×4 post and the wood wall). Perfect for entertaining, the space looks out to the dining and living areas.

The flooring is poured, self-leveling concrete topped with a gloss finish and wax. It’s 3/8″ thick, poured over the existing concrete slab. It has been scored in a large pattern, to not only control for cracks, but also for design aesthetics.
