Modern w/ a Side of Ranch
This contemporary renovation makes no concession towards differentiating the old from the new. Rather than razing the entire residence an effort was made to conserve what elements could be worked with and added space where an expanded program required it. Clad with cedar, the addition contains a master suite on the first floor and two children’s rooms and playroom on the second floor. A small vegetated roof is located adjacent to the stairwell and is visible from the upper landing. Interiors throughout the house, both in new construction and in the existing renovation, were handled with great care to ensure an experience that is cohesive. Partition walls that once differentiated living, dining, and kitchen spaces, were removed and ceiling vaults expressed. A new kitchen island both defines and complements this singular space.
The parti is a modern addition to a suburban midcentury ranch house. Hence, the name “Modern with Ranch.”
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add interest and practicality“This entry hall screen is made of walnut, acrylic and steel rods,” says Matthew Hufft of Hufft Projects. “To break it up a bit, we wanted to give the appearance of floating boxes, which are also practical since they can be used to store things like visitors’ hats and gloves. The walnut stools provide a place for guests to sit down when they take their shoes off.”Space Partitioning Ideas From Indian Homes
