Bird Rock Eco-Remodel
The plan was to transform this tired contemporary into a modern coastal classic with aesthetic and practical upgrades that reflect the natural environment. The original 1800 sq.ft. home in the heart of Bird Rock had structural and water damage issues, so implementing innovative building systems was key for the homeowner. As the designer for this LEED Silver home, KW Designs took on every interior aspect from space planning, finishes, fixtures, custom architectural elements, and furniture. Some of the green strategies were ceramic flooring throughout, concrete countertops with 60% recycled-content, and low-emitting cabinetry. The sleek, modern design has many custom features, like the full height aluminum pocket doors and metal-like recessed baseboards. A neutral palette for the interiors incorporates texture with elements like the ledge stone wall in the great room. The touches of vibrant colors play off the original artworks of George Rodrigue, the Blue Dogs, which brings personality into this sophisticated home.
