Mid-Century Remodel on Tabor Hill

In the Boston suburb of Lincoln, we renovated a mid-century modern home originally designed by Robert Coolidge, a contemporary of the famous modernist Walter Gropius. Our goal was to keep the integrity of the original design while creating more modern spaces that Coolidge himself may have designed if he'd had access to the materials and fixtures we have today. We riffed on the 1950's trend called a "floating kitchen" where the kitchen is free of the exterior wall allowing floor to ceiling glass. We also opened up the kitchen/dining area by creating custom upper cabinets, painted in Benjamin Moore "Rock Gray” that "float" below the exposed beam on the ceiling and above the Pental super white quartz counter top. We built on the home's original indirect lighting by adding new indirect lighting, including Bravo LED linear lights by Nora Lighting, to the kitchen work areas.

Creating dimension and more privacy in the lawn area with rockery wall and plantings....maybe more on the street side of house?

Maybe a good mix between traditional and contemporary.
