Borland Street

Stern McCafferty transformed an existing 1950’s ranch house into an open, modern, light-filled home.

Zoning restrictions, budget considerations and a desire to minimize the project’s carbon footprint influenced the decision to retain broad portions of the original structure. Additions were designed to expand the size of the home and to create a large double-height living and dining area. 

A simple palette of materials – board-formed concrete, steel, cedar siding, and zinc – are used to create a refined, modern exterior.

Ribbon windows allow morning light into the kitchen and a small trellis-covered terrace and garden were created to allow a direct connection to the streetscape.

Minimal and timeless design requires precision and an unwavering attention to detail.

The desire to make a strong connection between the home and the garden inspired a large window wall and exterior terraces and porch areas.
