“The house was modern to start with, and we wanted to pay homage to that original vocabulary,” says Mullen. “We did that through exposing the original, heavy timber pyramidal structure, and removing years of decorative applique. We ended up with a finished project that caters to the client’s current lifestyle, reflected in the updated kitchen, bathrooms, a new modern fireplace, and a warm color palate.”
