Klopf Architecture, Growsgreen Landscape Design, in addition to Flegel’s Construction partnered to bring this specific mid-century atrium Eichler home up to 21 century standards. One owner’s mother grew up in an Eichler, which gave them a deeper appreciation for the style of the home (in which same mother is actually also responsible for the Eichler quilt within the master bedroom photo).
They loved Eichlers, so while they wanted the house to work better for their family in addition to provide a little more elbow room, they also dreamed of living in a colorful warm mid-century modern home with natural wood like the original Eichlers. They entrusted Klopf Architecture to respectfully expand in addition to update the home, while still keeping the item “classic”.
The Klopf team helped them open up the kitchen, dining, in addition to living spaces into one flowing great room, expand the master suite, replace the kitchen in addition to bathrooms, in addition to provide additional features like an office in addition to powder room, all while maintaining the mid-century modern style of This specific Silicon Valley home.
Together with the owners, Geoff Campen in addition to the Klopf Architecture team carefully integrated elements in addition to ideas by the mid-century period without creating the space seem dated. Colorful panels on the cabinetry (by Kerf Design) harken back to the Mondrian reds, blues, in addition to yellows in some original Eichler cabinetry. Colorful tiles (by Heath Tile in addition to Fireclay Tile) within the bathrooms tastefully bring brightness without seeming dated.
Concrete floor tiles make for a high quality floor reminiscent of the original “unfinished” looking concrete slabs. Silver-colour aluminum doors contrasting with dark beams in addition to window trims reflect the original Eichler colour palette. The ceiling boards within the addition were stained to match the existing white-washed ceiling, in addition to the original siding still continues through the house by outside to inside to out within the living room in addition to atrium, even at the master bedroom addition.
In addition to of course the Klopf team kept the indoor / outdoor feeling of the house with floor-to-ceiling windows in addition to doors connecting the house to the atrium in addition to rear yard.
