The idea of the Boldt Residence was to insert a 21st century addition into a 1920’s structure in a way that would contrast and complement. Secondly, we had a strategy of re-configuring small unused spaces, expanding space to handle a multiplicity of programs. Then we set up connections and scenarios with the exterior, where every space has a unique relationship to the outside. Materials were re-used on site: beams became benches + counters became fountains. Salvaged walnut slabs became a counter and framing harvested from a demolished factory in Vernon became the living room floor.
