This residence was originally built in 1959 and is of the International Style of Architecture. Inspired by the home’s history, we reinterpreted it for today by using simple lines, smooth plains and adding texture with modern materials. Italian wood-look laminate for the base cabinets, back painted glass for the uppers, a subtle marble look quartz countertop and back splash provide texture and easy to clean durability in our new kitchen. Flangeless recessed lights and a thin linear pendant above the island provide subtle architectural lighting and ambiance. Keeping the original wood burning firebox intact, we created the illusion of a linear fireplace with basalt inspired porcelain and a clean contemporary look by using large porcelain wall slabs that extend from window to window. The subtle linear lines of these travertine inspired slabs lead our eye across the room and allow us to take in the full hillside view.
