The home with two floors is apart of Diamond Heights neighborhood. It is one of over 10,000 dwellings for the middle class that post-war real-estate developer Eichler completed between 1949 and 1966.
“We decided to strike a balance between the positive, inherent qualities of an Eichler structure with modern improvements that enhance rather than compete with the existing building,” said the studio.
Designed for a couple with two children, the renew involved organizing the interiors of the 2,210-square-foot property to create an open-plan living, kitchen and dining room right on the first floor.
Post and beams are apart of the family room and are painted in grey, while the wooden ceiling is a contrasting paler hue, which offers the space the possibility to look higher.
A set of sliding glass doors bring natural light to the home and open up to an outdoor deck. The window frames are painted according to match the structural elements.
A mix of wooden and white cabinetry with concrete countertops is built in the kitchen. The dining table runs from the central wooden island and is lit by three pendant lights hanging above. The table can be extended to accommodate more guests on chairs in hues of grey, blue and white.
A study also occupies this floor, while the two children’s bedrooms and the master bedroom are placed on the ground floor. On this level, bathrooms are fitted with built-in mahogany and white cabinetry, as well as wooden shelving to match.
