Renovating homes from the 1950s and 60s is a challenge because, while you want to keep the original charm and character of the mid-century time period, you still want to be able to make it function for today. That was the challenge that Klopf Architecture encountered when renovating this 1960s Palo Alto home. We'd say this one is a success.
Previously, the home was a dark space with lots of walls, but they opened it up and modernized it without taking away from the MCM feel. The kitchen previously had a partition wall that was removed and the windows were redesigned to bring in more light.
We love how they kept the ceiling true to its mid-century roots but were able to make the space more open for entertaining. The living space was actually reduced to make more room for a modern master bedroom, but you can't even tell because the oversized windows and sliding glass doors, in addition to the sloped ceilng, make the space feel open and airy.
The redesigned master includes a new walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom, in addition to a new laundry room. When can we move in?
