West Marin Modern

Utilizing the idea of reinventing rather than remodel, this space was stripped of its heavily textured walls, terra cotta floors and overbearing use of rustic wood and replaced with a clean and open space that would cast light and views throughout. The heavy timber beams where left in place and enhanced by the clean white walls and floors. Existing wood post where cloaked in triangulating white forms, a fireplace floats in the middle of the space both heating and entertaining the whole floor.
