When Jeremy Smith of Irving Smith Architects became the owner of this almost unchanged 1960s house, there were a few updates that needed to be done to make it work for a family of five.

One of those updates was an addition to the house to create a new bedroom, which was a gift for their daughter’s 13th birthday. Because teenagers like to have their own space.

The home also received updates to the kitchen, family spaces, and the way the home connected to the garden.

Inside, there are custom exposed shelves, and a curved kitchen countertop.

Dark wood cabinetry softens the industrial nature of the stainless steel countertop and appliances.

In the living area, the window seat becomes the perfect place for daydreaming.
