This 1950s tract house in the Bay Park neighborhood of San Diego has been entirely reimagined with an artistic nod to mid-century modern design. As renovators, Duende DNC continues to enrich its project portfolio producing work that is sensitive to the materials and details of the original house while instilling more timeless space design, detailing and architectural integrity throughout.
The new home entry sequence provides a refreshingly unique yet timeless and visceral experience so glaringly absent from most tract style homes.
570 sq ft of new addition allowed the previous kitchen and living room combined to become an entire master suite. Exposed wood, open beams, freestanding masonry walls and repurposed wood reenergize this 60+ year old home.
Most strikingly this location had hidden within the street facing facade large, beautiful old growth redwood planks and fascia boards which reappear in the new design liberated from their suffocation of years and layers of paint. Other architectural detailing includes the creative use of repurposed and salvaged wood, sculpture and furniture.
