By doing away with the unnecessary walls the architects achieved better cross-ventilation and a more flowing interaction between various ‘zones’ of the house.
A small dining area in the corner with Eames Molded Plastic Chairs in white and a kitchen visually connected with the landscape outside complete the lower level. A large wooden deck outside offers a cool sitting area that allows the homeowners to enjoy the relaxed ambiance while their favorite blues tunes stream out of the house.
The all-white kitchen with its marble countertops features a gorgeous central island at the heart of this ‘social space’ which creates plenty of opportunity for interaction between family members. A large wooden deck pergola and outdoor dining add to the open-air lifestyle.
This multi-story home was remodeled by Feldman Architecture to combine the classic Victorian exterior with a bright and airy contemporary interior promising the best of both worlds. Steel and glass play a major part in the stylish makeover while gray and white dominate the color palette.
