California Remodel Ideas


Located in Burlingame, California, this home is the beautiful Eichler residence remodel, by San Francisco based firm Klopf Architecture. The unimposing single story structure holds a stunning sophisticated open plan living space, and surrounds a central contemporary courtyard.

Single story home

The open plan scheme and glazed walls allow the homeowner to see each area of their home without obstruction, yet the staggered layout creates an interesting dynamic that is incredibly welcoming and prevents the house from appearing as an open soulless slab.

Rich autumnal browns decorate the lounge area, bringing warmth to the white surrounds. The garden can be seen beyond the glazed wall, which brings in a swathe of luscious green.

This triple seated home office area is a great addition for a modern family home with multiple computer users. Two large storage cupboards on either side of the long desk creates a great opportunity for hiding away the usual workspace clutter of printers, scanners, disks, ring-binder files and stationery supplies.

A huge kitchen island acts as a breakfast bar for casual dining, as well as playing home to the kitchen sink. Low hanging task lighting defines the area.
