Mid-century Modern

Posted on Mon, 27 Mar 2023 by midcenturyjo

“When Corinne’s client purchased this home, it was untouched besides a thoughtful renovation in 1965 by architect, Gilbert Leong.  The brief given by her design savvy musician client was that he desired the soul of the home to stay intact but wanted the amenities and finishes to be updated.  This project was a true example of how Corinne prefers to approach a renovation; the architecture of the home along with the client’s input guides the creative process.   As a result of this simple brief and a very successful collaboration, this 2900 square foot midcentury home received an extensive and collaborative remodel.”

Mid-Century Modern

Posted on Fri, 3 Mar 2023 by midcenturyjo

Twin Gable House in Sunnyvale, California is an Eichler, Plan OJ-1605, originally designed by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons in 1962. Twin Gable House is also a sympathetic and stylish renovation by Ryan Leidner Architecture. Minimalist modern living in a house that still celebrates its Eichler history. A fabulous example of Mid-Century Modern, not mid-century mash-up.

When space is at a premium in places like Paris, I love seeing how designers and architects use their creativity to maximize space and create storage. This Paris apartment isn’t very small (124 m²) but the amount of storage in each room makes me very envious (having lived in old homes with either no closets or tiny ones for many years). Also love the all white backdrop for the fun pops of colour and the black corridor that adds some serious drama. Designed by l’Agence June. (Photos: BCDF studio)

East Hampton’s mid-century modern

Posted on Thu, 9 Feb 2023 by midcenturyjo

Mid-century sensitivities, outside in living and a killer collection of art and furniture. Amidst a sea of beige this East Hampton mid-century modern home by New York-based David Scott Interiors is visually refreshing and extremely functional.

Palo Alto Eichler

The Atelier Davis team worked with Gustave Carlson Architects to renovate and expand a historic Eichler for a young family with a modern art collection.  Bright, colourful and fun staying true to the Eichler bones but adding the owners’ personalities. Mid-century modern never looked so good.
