After purchasing this midcentury modern home in the heart of Austin, Texas our clients realized it desperately needed an update to the interior of the public space to match the charismatic character of the exterior. The outdated and awkward kitchen cabinet layout blocked the visual connection to the adjacent dining area and the brown/orange-stained concrete was dark oppressive. A thin concrete topping slab with integral color was utilized to cover up the existing floor and help brighten the space. The new kitchen layout helped create a space that would accommodate both a small, quiet dinner or a larger gathering of friends and family. The corner of the kitchen cabinets, typically an under-utilized and inefficient space, was instead used as an entry vestibule with a small aperture to lend natural light to the entry and hall. Warm wood tones, bright blue cabinets, marble tile and brass cabinet hardware all work to modernize the space and compliment the couples exceptional collection of furniture, rugs and art.
