This Eichler update by Klopf Architecture has the owners signature design stamp all over it. I always look forward to receiving emails from Klopf Architecture because that means they have another project to share. I love the structure, the peaked ceiling and all of the beams. The gray and black color palette is striking. When I mentioned the owners have their own taste, I would say it is highlighted in the Kerf cabinets, they make a fairly straight forward statement. The new spaces look so roomy, not cramped at all. The glass walls help keep the interior spaces feeling open. The landscaping matches beautifully with the house.
“Together with the owners, Geoff Campen and the Klopf Architecture team carefully integrated elements and ideas from the mid-century period without making the space seem dated. Colorful panels on the cabinetry (by Kerf Design) harken back to the Mondrian reds, blues, and yellows in some original Eichler cabinetry. Colorful tiles (by Heath Tile and Fireclay Tile) in the bathrooms tastefully bring brightness without seeming dated. Concrete floor tiles make for a high quality floor reminiscent of the original “unfinished” looking concrete slabs. Silver-color aluminum doors contrasting with dark beams and window trims reflect the original Eichler color palette. The ceiling boards in the addition were stained to match the existing white-washed ceiling, and the original siding still continues through the house from outside to inside to out in the living room and atrium, even at the master bedroom addition. And of course the Klopf team kept the indoor / outdoor feeling of the house with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors connecting the house to the atrium and rear yard.”
