The turquoise color of the front door was inspired by the client’s appreciation of a vintage El Camino in the classic blue/aqua of the era.

Between the carport and the home is a small courtyard with a single tree that has been given room to grow over time.

Stepping inside, we see there are high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that line the walls, while a brown brick fireplace is a focal point.

In the dining room, there’s a dark wood table with matching chairs that add a pop of color to the open-plan interior. A Sputnik inspired pendant light draws the eye upwards to the high ceiling.

Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen, where simple modern wood cabinets line the wall, there’s a window that acts as a backsplash, and a large island creates additional space for seating.

Throughout the home, 1800 pounds (816kg) of various colored glass was hand spread into the concrete floor as it was setting up, making a one-of-a-kind unique floor.
