Mid-Century Modern Reborn


This 1960 house was in need of updating from both design and performance standpoints, and the project turned into a comprehensive energy retrofit, with thorough airtightness and insulation, new space conditioning and energy-recovery-ventilation, triple glazed windows, and an interior of incredible elegance. While we maintained the foundation and overall massing, this is essentially a new house, well equipped for a new generation of use and enjoyment.
