An extensive renovation and addition to an existing Eichler home in San Jose, CA by Blaine Architects + Marshall Interiors. The owners fully embraced mid century modern styling and design, and they bought the home because they loved how warm and inviting it felt inside. When the owners purchased the home, they had never heard of Eichler homes, and didn’t really know much about mid century modern design, however after living there for a few months, they understood the draw of the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the extensive roof over hangs that allow one to enjoy the outdoors without walls, the exposed structural posts and beams, and the way the warm wood paneling made them feel more peaceful and grounded while at home. So when they decided they wanted to improve and enhance the concepts they loved about the home, they reached out to their architect neighbors across the street, Megan Blaine. And this became her very first independent project, and it launched her career. Photography by Jean Bai.
