A Mid-Century Modern Recreation: Ocotea House Renovation In Raleigh

An aging structure, a series of poorly planned renovations spread across several decades turned this mid-century home built in the 60’s into a dreary and poorly lit structure. Transforming the classic home into a modern delight even while keeping its midcentury zest firmly intact, in situ studio create a relaxing and striking structure. One of central guiding principles for the makeover was the original design of the home that relied on a simple roof form, low-sloped ranch and a basement that was completely visible to the outside world. Removing the poorly planned sunroom that was added subsequently, a new carport gives the Ocotea House Renovation its distinct front façade. Read More

Lansberg worked under Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer and the influence of these two Bauhaus masters is evident in the Port Washington Residence.

Mid Century Renovation Brisbane Australia

This mid century renovation Brisbane Australia has a dramatic roof line that creates drama and protects from the elements. Currently on the market the 1960’s house has gone through a renovation. My first thought was that the kitchen was to white and glossy. When I saw the wood on the walls and floor maybe wood cabinets wouldn’t be too much. I still think it is a wee bit to contemporary. The architecture of the house itself is very nice. Low slung roof line with exaggerated overhang and the beams moving in and out of the home. I would like to hear your thoughts. Was the mid century feeling lost with the renovation? Read More

Mid Century Renovation Del Mar California

This mid century renovation Del Mar California is an eclectic mix of color and style. The interiors are not totally my flavor but there are some cool elements happening. I like the master bedroom the most out of any room in the house. I would probably ditch the crazy wallpaper but the wall with the headboard is stunning. Lets not forget about the Serge Mouille lighting, those arms create some great shapes in space. These interiors are by Studio H Design Group and I think they did a great job. Read More


Modern Renovation By Yamamar

This modern renovation by Yamamar is a stunning home that has gone through a nice transformation. It would be cool to see what the house looked like before. I like amazingly open the home is. All of the skylights also add to the open architecture. The different volumes are defined on the exterior by different materials. Shall we talk about the kitchen? I haven’t seen a kitchen in a while that made me think “dream kitchen”. The landscaping was also a complete gut job. I am glad they did the landscaping because it does a great job enhancing the house. Read More


Mid Century Renovation By Peterssen Keller

This mid century renovation by Peterssen Keller Architecture resulted in a beautiful updated home. The way the home sits amongst the old growth is so picturesque. I must say that the interiors are a tad contemporary for me but that is just personal taste. The square volumes set at different levels defines spaces. I like that from the front, the house feels pretty unassuming and not that interesting but when you get a view from the back, the windows create this magic diorama that makes you want to look. I didn’t see much about the architect but it is surly a great house. It is good to see people decided to invest in this gem. Read More


Apartment Renovation By RSRG Architects

RSRG Architects did a great job on the apartment renovation. I am curious as to what the apartment was before as the concrete beams make me feel like it was something industrial before. I like the concrete beams, it certainly adds another level of architectural and material interest. The chevron floors are quite dramatic in the first picture. I find it interesting that they used a different type of wood on the storage wall than on the floor. Maybe I would have done something with a little more contrast.The more I look at the interior spaces I want to think this is more of a loft, beautiful either way. Read More
