Mid Century Modernized
This home was originally designed by Russel Barr Williamson, a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright. To stay true to Wright’s design principles, the remodel needed to provide open living spaces that flow together. Astute space planning that incorporated existing structural elements was essential to ensure a functional kitchen and entertainment area. The existing barriers were diminished by removing walls and reimagining how the spaces fit together.
The design of the kitchen (and beyond) needed to respect the style of the home and existing finishes. Following Wright’s lead: fire became the “heart of the home” by adding a fireplace, pecky cypress and Lannon stone were repeated, and strong horizontal lines of stained walnut cabinetry and soffited light coves were crafted. The herringbone pattern of the floor tile echoed the pattern of the existing flooring and angles of the floorplan.
