Medina Midcentury

When the owners of this midcentury modern home were ready to remodel, they wanted to respect the original principles and aesthetic characteristics of the era. Although the floor plan offered open connections between the entry, kitchen, and main-floor living spaces, it still felt cramped and dark. Board & Vellum’s design created a truly open “great room” with improved visibility and flow between all the major programmatic elements, better connection (physically and visually) between the interior and the outdoors, and added functionality.

Exterior materials were carefully chosen to match the originals, creating a truly seamless addition. Interior finishes and fixtures, such as the geometric tile, Sputnik-inspired chandelier, and double-sided fireplace wall, along with structural elements like the exposed steel beams, reflect midcentury style, but are complemented by contemporary features preventing the home from looking like a time capsule.

We also made updates to bring the house up to energy code, including double-glazed windows built on-site to fit the original casings and insulation in the roof and crawlspace.
