Halladay Street Remodel modern living room

Halladay Street Remodel

BUILD was tasked with fully updating this neglected home and site to accommodate the owners’ lifestyle and young boys. Relying and expanding on our experience of redesigning and rebuilding mid-century modern homes, BUILD’s updates encompass all aspects of the home and site, including the interior program, systems and finishes. Without adding any new volume, the usable square footage of this home was effectively doubled by thoughtful refinishing and revitalizing of the lower basement level. This design brings a refreshed relationship to the site and landscape as well as the remodeled pool area, particularly from the lower level. This house has been able to maintain its mid-century roots and form, while accommodating a family’s needs and desires for a home built for the current era.

The stone was original to the house from the 1950's.

What type of wood and how are the ceilings treated? - Beautiful job! Just bought a house in Carlsbad, Ca with same layout but ugly colors! What treatment is given to the beams? Are the beams stained or painted? I am horrible with colors, so can you provide me with the scheme in the ceilings? Your time and help are appreciated!

Love the ceiling except the woods are too dark. Lighten them up but keep the color contrast. For some reason, I would like more light in this room.
