This project involves the renovation of an existing mid-century modern home by SKB Architects in collaboration with Rocky Rochon Design, located in Medina, Washington. Consisting of 3,500 square feet of living space, the remodel included a new kitchen, pantry and laundry area off of the kitchen as well as the renovation of the master bedroom suite. All of the exterior windows, roofing and finishes were also updated.

Due to lack of maintenance over the years the home required extensive work, this entailed: new roofs, exterior siding, electrical, plumbing and windows and doors. Additionally, the home had a very dated aesthetic and the client was interested in modernizing it to being more of an abstracted, sleek and current design. The overall design reflects a modern and minimal aesthetic, with innovative touches throughout and a strong indoor-outdoor connection.

The design solution involved opening up the kitchen and adding a pantry just off of it. A powder bathroom was also design just adjacent to this space. A floating island and wall of glass opposite, brings focus to the outdoors, as well as back into a small breakfast/family area.

All of the main level windows were replaced with large, single fixed windows that were strategically on axis to all the focal points of the exterior landscape. Next to these windows are hidden doors in the wall, which enables access to the yard. The volumes of the exterior architectural forms were also abstracted by removing all embellishments from them and applying a simple white stucco surface.

What We Love: Expansive windows throughout this mid-century modern home enhances the indoor-outdoor experience. The living room is the social core of this dwelling, it breaks up the monotony of the overall minimalist scheme with its exquisite, dual-sided fireplace. Spaces seem to flow from one to the next thanks to the thoughtful renovation of the floor plan where spaces are now open to each other… Readers, please share with us what your favorite features of this renovation project are in the comments below!
