This midcentury home was designed by Alfred Newman Beadle in 1966. 180 Degrees was hired to bring it up to date. The client wanted to add 800 sq ft for a master suite while changing the other bedrooms into a guest room, master closet, and office. They also wanted to open up the kitchen to accommodate contemporary patterns. Our team wanted to keep elements of the era of the architecture but not copy the original design. The former exterior wall was repurposed as an interior wall in the master bedroom. We kept the same eight foot ceiling height through the new addition. A skylight was cut out before the bedroom to show off the texture of the former exterior wall. White oak was used from the left overs of another 180 Degrees project to create a feature wall. The Guild sliced the wood blocks to create an informal grid then framed it with white powder-coated steel. The existing bathroom millwork was refreshed with new paint. We carried over the glass walls theme into the new addition of the house. For the kitchen we kept the original aluminum features that Beadle is known for but replaced the maple cabinets with white and light grey lacquer millwork by Bulthaup. We restored the original outside beams and weatherproofed them to make sure we did not disturb the original design.
