M House

Single-Family

Born of the Mid-Century Modern architecture movement, “M house” is a quintessential California ranch house.  The restoration of the house included updating the open plan layout while preserving the integrity of the exposed beam and rafter structure.  A streamlined, natural material palette connects the space with the original mid-century identity.  A soft, natural earth-tone terrazzo finishes the slab foundation and carries to the exterior landscaping. In combination with the wrapped glass wall panels, the continuous surface pulls the exterior into the interior space and establishes a connection to nature.  Sweeping roof lines define a dynamic interior space by way of exposed beams and rafters, which give way to moments of natural light and further articulate the space in section.  Unifying the previously segregated kitchen with the living area modernized the house’s spatial quality and activated socialization. After removing the dated pink interior walls, elegant walnut cabinets and a 12’ long stainless steel countertop island bring back a sense of timeless clarity.  The master bathroom is an elongated, minimalist space drawing on the beauty of timeless mid-century interiors. The wall-mounted bench further articulates the length of the space, while the skylight alleviates the space with natural light. Large format concrete tiles compliment the tongue and groove ceiling, connecting the bath to the living area and remainder of the house.
