Modern is Modern Again in Portola ValleyModern Kitchen, San Francisco

For this remodel in Portola Valley, California we were hired to rejuvenate a circa 1980 modernist house clad in deteriorating vertical wood siding. The house included a greenhouse style sunroom which got so unbearably hot as to be unusable. We opened up the floor plan and completely demolished the sunroom, replacing it with a new dining room open to the remodeled living room and kitchen. We added a new office and deck above the new dining room and replaced all of the exterior windows, mostly with oversized sliding aluminum doors by Fleetwood to open the house up to the wooded hillside setting. Stainless steel railings protect the inhabitants where the sliding doors open more than 50 feet above the ground below. We replaced the wood siding with stucco in varying tones of gray, white and black, creating new exterior lines, massing and proportions. We also created a new master suite upstairs and remodeled the existing powder room.

    The installation was done by Korts and Knight of San Francisco. We didn't discuss that detail. I let them take care of it. - Mark

    I really would like to know how the cutting board was sealed in the countertop. I have asked our contractor to do this, but he is concerned that there might be rot, if it isn't sealed correctly.

    I'm sorry, but I don't have a record of the paint color. We usually use Benjamin Moore paints, if that helps. - Mark.

    Thank you for the compliment. They are from Pedini, but they are not stainless steel. It is a lacquered finish. You're welcome. - Mark

    The cabinets are "Outline" by Pedini. The handles are a proprietary companion to the cabinets. - Mark

    The sinks are from Blanco. I don't have a link to the specific models. - Mark.

Kitchen isn't our style, but would love to have back of the house open to the backyard with series of patio doors.
