My client had the idea of adding this beautiful, redwood fence along the inside courtyard and side yard. It really popped against the new grey paint tones. We added a new, glass garage door and address wall to complete the look. Photo by Adrian Kinney

We like drawing inspiration from mid century queues. Examples of this can be seen in the low pitched roof lines and tapered brick. We also like to think you can get some big looks while still being frugal. While going for a tongue and groove cedar look, we opted to use cedar fence pickets to give us and inexpensive but decadent feel to our roof eaves.

In the Boston suburb of Lincoln, we renovated a mid-century modern home originally designed by Robert Coolidge, a contemporary of the famous modernist Walter Gropius. Our goal was to keep the integrity of the original design while creating more modern spaces that Coolidge himself may have designed if he'd had access to the materials and fixtures we have today. We riffed on the 1950's trend called a "floating kitchen" where the kitchen is free of the exterior wall allowing floor to ceiling glass. We also opened up the kitchen/dining area by creating custom upper cabinets, painted in Benjamin Moore "Rock Gray” that "float" below the exposed beam on the ceiling and above the Pental super white quartz counter top. We built on the home's original indirect lighting by adding new indirect lighting, including Bravo LED linear lights by Nora Lighting, to the kitchen work areas. Photo by: Nat Rea Photography

at the larger scale of the property existed a desire to soften and deepen the engagement between the house and the street frontage. as such, the landscaping palette consisted of textures chosen for subtlety and granularity. spaces were layered by way of planting, diaphanous fencing and lighting. the interior engages the front of the house by insertion of a floor to ceiling glazing at dining room. jog-in path to house from street maintains a sense of privacy and sequential unveiling of interior/private space. this non-atrium model was invested with the best aspects of the iconic eichler configuration without compromise to the sense of order and orientation. photo: scott hargis
