Southern Californian Eichler homes spark nostalgia for yesteryear, yet the Klopf Architecture team found a way to pay modern homage to one home’s roots. The Sunnyvale home beautifully incorporates elements of the original structure into 21st century design.
The owners of the Eichler wanted to preserve the essence of the home down to the natural wood flooring, giving Klopf Architecture and Flegel’s Construction a challenge to create a workable mixture of style for the family. Colorful cabinetry panels similar to the original were featured in the kitchen, which was remodeled to open up the space into the living area. The bright, airy room also includes the dining area and plenty of natural light.
The bathroom was updated to feature a classic tile look with an ageless hue. Expanding the master bedroom allowed the owners more space without compromising the time-honored structure of the home. Original siding is featured outside and the floor-to-ceiling windows are quite possibly the most stunning feature. Growsgreen Landscape Design developed the accompanying greenery in the cozy backyard space. Quality insulation and in-floor radiant heating, as well as no need for AC, improved the house’s green standards and ensure the family’s optimum comfort in their mid-century dream home.
