In the heart of Silicon Valley, a 2,121-square-foot Eichler home oozes with midcentury charm and sophistication after a thoughtful renovation.

The owners chose to keep some of the original Eichler elements in the revamp, including the stained tongue-and-groove redwood ceiling decking and the luan wall paneling. However, the luan paneling has been lightly sanded, cleaned, and re-stained.

When Klopf Architecture and Jesse Ososki Art were asked to remodel a four-bedroom, two-bath atrium-style Eichler in the heart of Silicon Valley, their goal was to preserve the home’s classic look, without feeling like they had to strictly adhere to it. 

The atrium door at the front entry (on the right) is painted a light blue—the same accent color that has been used in the home's kitchen and bathroom.

The revamp consisted of re-configuring the master bedroom and bath, as well as the kitchen, hall bathroom, and laundry area. Interior finishes were also updated throughout, adding a sense of sophisticated flair.

“The owners are detail-oriented and were very involved in the design process, down to the selection of lighting controls and stainless steel faceplates, ” the architects explain. “Their design aesthetic leans toward a Scandinavian-like feel—light and bright, with simple straight lines and pure geometric shapes.” As the results display, their sensibilities proved to be a perfect pairing with the beloved Eichler aesthetic. 

The atrium-style design perfectly integrates a sense of the outdoors throughout the home.
