Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, and Flegels Construction updated a classical 1950s original mid-century modern home designed by the late Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice Ellis Jacobs. Klopf Architecture pushed the original design intent to make the house more open and uniform from space to space, while improving energy efficiency. The project also involved capitalizing more on the already incredible views, improving the flow of spaces, providing an outdoor living area, and ratcheting up the quality level of the home in general.

The custom mid-century modern home is a remodeled single-family house in Redwood City, California, USA. This 2,000 square foot (plus garage), three bedroom, two-bathroom home is located in the heart of the Silicon Valley. As you enter, you are greeted by an open-plan kitchen, dining and relaxation zone, which acts as the social core of the house. A diverse array of materials and textures adds dynamics to the overall scheme. As you walk through the rooms, you get a sense of elegance originally mixed with a welcoming factor. We would love to know your thoughts on this home design with legendary modern roots! [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Klopf Architecture]
