MAK Studio designed a new home in Burlingame, California that features clean lines and dark accents topped by a pitched roof.
Minimalist concrete stairs lead from the sidewalk to the front door. A pivoting dark wooden door greets visitors to the house. In the front door there is a foyer with high ceilings and gray tiles. The interior of the living room is bright and high, with white walls, an open floor plan, and a wood panel that lines the length of the room.
The social areas of the house are divided between the living and dining areas, with the kitchen on a lower level. In the kitchen, light wood cabinets match the accent of the wood wall, while the dark island falls down and forms a secondary dining area. Adjacent to the kitchen is a second living area that opens onto a courtyard at the rear of the house. The inner courtyard has dark wooden terraces with trees and a couple of comfortable day beds.
The master bedroom has a series of windows above the bed, with a second series of windows increasing the amount of natural light the room receives. In the main bathroom there is a wooden and dark gray stone vanity under a large mirror with hidden lighting.
In one of the children’s rooms, a striped carpet gives the room a soft touch and warmth. In another nursery, blue accents add a touch of color to a neutral color palette.
