It is Kirkwood McCarthy who managed to pull off this challenging makeover as they went about revamping upgrading and giving in a whole new lease on life! The conversion is truly amazing with the new three-story two-bedroom house making the most of every inch of space on offer.
Some of the most iconic buildings of the world rely on their roofs to create this image of splendor and extravagance. While might not floor you with its sheer grandeur it does turn to a series of cantilevered timber-clad trapezoidal roof forms to fashion a series of open outdoor spaces and hangouts.
It is a splash of purple that breathes life into the bedroom even as a bright wall mural and clever decorative pieces fill the nursery with cheer. Art Deco influences hold sway in the dining room that also doubles as a serene and rejuvenating hangout with framed photographs adding to the urbane setting.
With an L-shaped structure there is plenty of room here for a fabulous rear garden and poolscape that was shaped by Arterra Landscape Architects. The pool becomes a part of the interior thanks to the series of large sliding glass doors and walls that make up a continuous and transparent ‘wall’ delineating the interior from the outdoors.
The revamped floor plan of the house focuses on an open living area with the new kitchen and the family room acting as the social zone. Both these spaces open up towards the large rear garden and the outdoor living and dining spaces even as the living room and dining area sit next to one another.
With a ceiling clad in western red cedar light-filled contemporary bedrooms and a calming atmosphere this home in San Mateo California reinvents the iconic Eichler home design in its own inimitable fashion!
The dining room sits at the heart of this floor and offers a glimpse of the mezzanine-level bedroom above. The blue cabinets of the kitchen and the dark black workstation add color to the space even as the custom wall mural in the living area and the bedroom above usher in pattern and panache.
