Tom + Jane
Whole House Renovation
This project comprises an intensive renovation of an early midcentury home, on a sunny slope of Mount Tabor.
Tom + Jane picked their home for its layout and position, but made big changes for reasons of aesthetics and performance, as well as to accommodate them for eventual aging in place. We completely reconfigured all bathrooms, raised ceilings, and updated all lighting and audio systems. A new scheme for cabinetry and trim aims to be refined, timeless, cohesive and in line with Tom + Jane's earthy but elegant palette. A steel and glass deck and cast-in-place concrete patio is a major feature of our redesign, affording gorgeous views and spaces for outdoor entertaining.
Seismic, mechanical, and energy efficiencies were of paramount importance to the owners. Updates are numerous, including steel-framed triple-glazed windows, new skylights, hydronic radiant floor heating, and a standing-seam metal roof with solar panels (which power the couple's car).
