The single family home, built in 1962, had a fashionable mid-century and Danish modern styling but was in need of modernized design and construction upgrades after years of deferred maintenance.
The owner wanted to increase the property’s usable square footage without changing the footprint of the residence. The ground floor, for example, contained approximately 1,000 square feet of unconditioned space.
This property benefited from a “whole-house” remodel. A development plan was created for each room that considered the overall preservation of its mid-century architecture.
Team Centoni researched interior and exterior details using historical publications and sourced new materials that would complement the existing design.
Materials included Heath Tiles, cork flooring, and the upgrade of a period central intercom and audio system to support an iPod/iPhone. Many “green-friendly” products were used to outfit this home – from appliances and windows to tile and flooring.
Once completed, the home provided almost 3,000 square feet of living space.
