Located in Menlo Park, California, this 3,000 sf. remodel was carefully crafted to generate excitement and make maximum use of the owner’s strict budget and comply with the city’s stringent planning code. It was understood that not everything was to be redone from a prior owner’s quirky remodel which included odd inward angled walls, circular windows and cedar shingles. Remedial work to remove and prevent dry rot ate into the budget as well. Studied alterations to the exterior include a new trellis over the garage door, pushing the entry out to create a new soaring stair hall and stripping the exterior down to simplify its appearance. The new steel entry stair leads to a floating bookcase that pivots to the family room. For budget reasons, it was decided to keep the existing cedar shingles. Upstairs, a large oak multi-level staircase was replaced with the new simple run of stairs. The impact of angled bedroom walls and circular window in the bathroom were calmed with new clean white walls and tile. Photo Credit: John Sutton Photography.
This bookcase was cleverly built into a staircase to utilise otherwise wasted space, and also to create a display for some of the owner's many books. The interior of the bookshelf is wall-papered in Mediterranean Wallpaper from Cole and Son.

Carlos Martin Architects, Inc.
The art of modern living is expressed with eloquent aplomb in this brand-new showplace on the Intracoastal Waterway in The Estates, historic Old Boca Raton’s prestigious beachside enclave. Created by an award-winning Florida-based Architect Carlos A. Martin, and by noted South Florida builder, Infinity Custom Estates, this Tropical Georgian-inspired masterpiece (I call it Gulfstream Southern Classical Style) exudes serene timelessness with classic symmetry, then takes an unexpected twist with clean-lined high-style interiors by award-winning Marc-Michaels. In each detail, the vision is artistic genius, and the resulting overall effect is simply breathtaking. 10’ high French doors flow to the waterfront verandah and Hamptons-style pool from the open living/dining room, club room/library, and family room, all of which are as sumptuously comfortable as they are stunningly refined. From the gorgeous smoky-hued marble and walnut floors to the sleek custom built-ins, exquisite marble-clad fireplace, and ebony-wood “ribbon” accent wall, the design scheme beautifully balances bold impact and subtle glamour. Opening off the upstairs gallery is a waterfront lounge deck appointed as a resort-like open-air spa room, a sublime luxury. Transcending the ordinary in every aspect, this is a sophisticated Intracoastal estate, rendered to perfection with singular style.
