Fascinating Eichler Home Remodel in Burlingame, California

The owners of this charming family abode in Burlingame, California, USA had long dreamed of an Eichler home remodel they would live in forever. Their vision was clean, contemporary, and open. Klopf Architecture would design and reconfigure the open plan family room, remove some walls and add windows, reconfigure the bathrooms/ laundry areas and upgrade systems to be more efficient, while working closely with the talented executive mother of three on selection of interior finishes and fixtures.

The owners decorated and furnished the home themselves, with many vintage mid-century modern furniture pieces and original art. The result is a fascinating array of modern interiors, each defined by a unique style. We find the inner terrace particularly interesting with its simple, yet practical configuration. What details do you consider appealing? [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Klopf Architecture]

    When I read ‘remodeling’ in the title, I certainly wasn’t expecting anything like this. I can hardly believe the yard. I’m looking for inspiration to remodel my own home right now. I don’t want anything this extreme, but updating the exterior would be nice.

    I ADORE inner courtyards –the classic Spanish patio interior–, don’t you? they are timeless and give you that feeling of cosiness and outside unrestrained nature; still, with your privacy protected.
    Very nice home. My only objection is something totally personal: I dislike roof lines that copy the Chinese Hat. That pointed look… I find it ubiquitous, banal and aggressive.

    This is an absolutely stunning refurbishment of an Eichler home. I am just curious as to why Freshome chose to substitute the front elevation photograph (second from the top) with a picture from another house (look at the central roof structure). The photography is excellent but I would really like to see the front elevation of this house. Am I missing something?
