Amazing renovation of midcentury home in California focused on views

mid-century-remodel-exterior

David Henig, Architect is responsible for the renovation of this midcentury modern family home located in Atherton, a town in San Mateo County, California. This four-bedroom home is owned by the architect, his wife, and their two daughters. When this home came up for sale, the architect saw this home’s full potential. Sited on a sloped lot, the overall feel is like you are living in a treehouse, yet with complete privacy and plenty of midcentury charm. 

The exterior of this midcentury dwelling was clad with a new gray-washed cedar siding. Flanking either side of the living room are two brand new decks with metal railings. The original wood retaining wall in the backyard was replaced with a gabion wall. After the family moved in, they lived here for almost seven years to realize this home’s potential prior to the remodel. They did, however, scrape walls and get rid of the shag carpeting to make this home habitable.

What We Love: This beautiful midcentury home offers an incredible renewal with walls of glass and a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The back of this home is especially exquisite, with the deck off the kitchen and large windows flooding the interiors with natural light.

Above: The architect preserved this home’s original covered walkway, yet improved upon its curb appeal. To do so, the architect removed the asphalt that had previously led up to this dwelling. In its place, native landscaping helps to improve the overall aesthetic. Newly integrated outdoor lighting illuminates the aggregate walkway, navigating the path in the evening.

The upper level of this home encompasses the living, dining and kitchen spaces. All of these living zones open out to the backyard through sliding walls of glass. In the kitchen, the butcher block countertop on the island is composed of maple. A raised walnut slab is the perfect spot for entertaining.

Very beautiful. Like the ideal office/home…the dining room could easily be a conference room. Gorgeous views into the natural surroundings–could feel a bit exposed or take some time to adjust.
