A Renewed Classic Eichler by Klopf Architecture
View Slideshow

Klopf Architecture, known for their stellar Eichler renovations, recently completed another one, this time in Sunnyvale, California. Klopf, along with Growsgreen Landscape Design and Flegel’s Construction, updated and brought to life this mid-century atrium Eichler to modern times. The clients had a deep appreciation for Eichler, but they also wanted the home to work better for their family, while at the same time desiring a colorful and warm mid-century modern home, like the original Eichlers.

Klopf Architecture not only expanded and updated the home in a respectful way, they managed to still keep the design “classic”. The kitchen, dining, and living spaces were opened up to become one large space. The master suite was expanded, the kitchen was completely replaced, as were the bathrooms, and additional work was done in the office and powder room, all while keeping its mid-century style. Colorful panels on the kitchen cabinetry reference the Mondrian-like reds, blues, and yellows from original Eichler cabinets. The cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom were designed by Kerf Design.

Large concrete floor tiles give the feel of the original “unfinished” looking concrete slabs.
