An ambitious undertaking yielding a modernist gem, Micheal Kao of MAK Sttudio was tasked with transforming an existing dark ranch style home built in the 1950’s into a sleek architectural display of open plan living interposed with light and volume.
Choosing a neutral antiesthetic tone, the exterior accentuated with Vermont stone is complimented by an interior with neutral hues and a structure surrounded by natural elements with a wide-open airy feeling that is transposed throughout the dwelling.
Amazing vision and attention to detail extends throughout the residence including such items as floor to ceiling windows throughout and an open rectangle in an interior wall to take advantage of light that saturates a stairwell, to create ribbons of light deep inside the home. Purposefully architected to create visible space, the kitchen, family and dining areas flow into one another delineated by interior design elements so that as you walk through the house, it unveils itself.
