Mid-sized 1950s gray two-story wood gable roof photo in Boston

Mid-Century Remodel on Tabor HillMidcentury Exterior, Boston

In the Boston suburb of Lincoln, we renovated a mid-century modern home originally designed by Robert Coolidge, a contemporary of the famous modernist Walter Gropius. Our goal was to keep the integrity of the original design while creating more modern spaces that Coolidge himself may have designed if he'd had access to the materials and fixtures we have today. We riffed on the 1950's trend called a "floating kitchen" where the kitchen is free of the exterior wall allowing floor to ceiling glass. We also opened up the kitchen/dining area by creating custom upper cabinets, painted in Benjamin Moore "Rock Gray” that "float" below the exposed beam on the ceiling and above the Pental super white quartz counter top. We built on the home's original indirect lighting by adding new indirect lighting, including Bravo LED linear lights by Nora Lighting, to the kitchen work areas. Photo by: Nat Rea Photography

    Hi! Thanks so much for your interest in this project. All of the interior furniture was selected by the owner, so unfortunately we do not have that information. Sorry to not be of more help.

    These windows are original from the 1950's. They appear to have been custom built for the house. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Best, Flavin Architects
