This transformation was dramatic! It had been purchased as a foreclosure during the height of the Phoenix down-market and was a tired 1970’s ranch style home in need of a space planning and style rescue. Mid century modern was the style directive and a vivid memory of this project is of leaving the initial client meeting, glancing back at the house and wondering if it was all possible to achieve (check out the before and afters). Budget constraints were balanced with a streamlining of spaces and finishes. Light, bright, airy, open spaces were a priority. A 12 foot opening and new beam over the opening to the backyard was integral to the indoor-outdoor living concept. Low ceilings were offset by long expansive interior viewpoints, punctuated by bold art and accent-colored walls.
This home was featured as a “Cool Home” in The Arizona Republic newspaper in February, 2013, and was also included on an ASID home tour that same month.
