Carnation Residence

Architectural renovation and interior design of early modernist residence

built in 1931 by a Japanese engineer. Reclaimed metal windows, clay

finished walls, custom glazed concrete floor tiles and custom cabinetry

in black walnut were added. Bathrooms were hand built in oiled teak by

a local artisan. The house has the feel of a Japanese farmhouse meets a

stream lined modern structure. All materials were carefully selected to have

no “off-gassing” and everything was oiled and left with a natural finish. We

embraced the imperfections of nature, encouraged patina as well as daily

interaction with the outdoor.
