A client for whom we had previously
done two projects came to me saying “we want
to tear down the existing house and stay within its
footprint; but, we want a house that looks like
a Tuscan Farmhouse that has been renovated by a slick
Italian architect. I collaborated on this project
with architect Michael Wolfe Siegel who had just returned
from living in Italy for two years. The house
has recreated that scenario which our client outlined: Wide
wood plank floors, large square ceiling beams, stucco
plaster inside & out and douglas fir cabinetry.
The master bath and bedroom are separate by a douglas
fir divider which provides closets and storage and
includes a segmented arch entry echoing the shape of
windows on the first floor.
We were able to complete the contemporary home interior
design with a collection of custom designed furnishings
in concert with classic mid century modern furniture.
