Located in the beautiful city of Carmel-by-the-Sea California this cozy home was originally a Mid-Century era structure that was in need of a breezy contemporary update. But Studio Schicketanz not only altered the interior of the aging structure but also gave it an entirely new context by turning it into the very first LEED-certified home in the neighborhood.
The overhaul saw the opening up of the interiors to usher in a flood of natural light while removing the indoor partitions to create a more open and cozy living area. The low-pitched roof and exposed rafters of the original home accentuate the midcentury style of the latest renovation as plush décor in neutral hues fills up the living room and the bedroom.
