The architect carefully listened to their needs and desires before start working. Page Goolrick said to Dwell: “To solve design problems, you have to look at how a family really lives and works. I think an architect’s job is to celebrate what people really care about and simplify and streamline the rest.

The renovation of this beautiful Mid-century Modern cabin carefully considered the proximity to the sea that requires materials that adapt and adjust over time, as driftwood, but also require little or no maintenance. Also the color palette reflects the environment to create a relaxed and warm atmosphere.

Furniture-wise, however, it is an explosion of Mid-century Modern European and American classics. In the living room/kitchen area over the Saarinen oval table there’s a Louis Poulsen lamp while Mirror Ball pendants by Tom Dixon hover over the kitchen counter. A Tab F1 floor lamp from Flos is behind the Dunbar sofa designed by Edward Wormley.
