New life is given to this 1965 Craig Ellwood house with an exacting exterior restoration and an interior renovation, all while maintaining the integrity of the original design.The shell of this home—essentially a glass box—needed significant work. All existing single-paned windows were upgraded with more energy conscious glazing, while preserving the optical quality, layout, and operating systems of the units.

Deteriorating siding was replaced with new wood stained to match the natural redwood of the home’s exposed structural framing and cladding.

In the 1,700 square foot home, efficiency of space was paramount and modest alterations to the interior facilitate the flow of movement in the small space. In the kitchen, relocating the cooktop improved functionality of the room without disturbing the galley layout.

Storage spaces for the guest bedroom and office were reapportioned to give more space to the guest bath, where all fixtures were relocated to one side and a large skylight was added. The most extensive updates were made to the master bath, where the entrances and all fixtures were relocated to lend more privacy to the master bedroom and to channel daylight from the hallway.

An informed blend of customized contemporary and authentic mid-century pieces is carefully scaled into the compact, open living area, simplifying circulation and creating comfort through aesthetically appropriate means.

Throughout the home, white drywall and laminate were replaced with natural materials that elevate the experience of the home as they extend the intention of the original detailing.
