San Mateo

This Mid-century modern home designed in 1957 by noted Bay Area Architect Mogens Mogensen, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright, had undergone several iterations through the years, incrementally losing the fundamental relationships of its simple‘t’-shaped plan. The current owners, 10 years and three boys later, decided it was time for an overhaul. The relocated kitchen anchors the redesign both inside and out, and reconnects with the living and dining room volumes.

A new second floor master suite provides needed privacy and additional square footage, while capturing sweeping Bay views. All of the original spaces were restored to showcase the post and beam structure, exposed T&G ceilings and generous glazing while new rooms respect the original aesthetic with a contemporary twist.
