Much of the original 1950’s charm was still existing, though it had missed out on the open floor plan and connection with the backyard. With the clients, we not only updated this home, but gave it the mid-century openness it had been lacking, with the oversized sliding glass wall, doors and windows as part of the addition connecting the kitchen and dining room to the back and the art wall screen in the living room allowing for privacy as well as a place to display art while keeping an open feel.
