Married couple Theo Reitsema, an architect, and Stephanie Weitering, an interior designer, spent a year living in a house that dates back to 1967 to see what would be the best way to update the home.

 

The house has a lower level that’s covered in dark stucco. A stepped path leads from the driveway to the front door.

The main floor of the home has one end surrounded by glass on three sides, allowing the living room, kitchen and dining room to have views of the garden. A new wood facade is featured on the remaining exterior of the house.

Inside, the floor and ceiling, as well as the furnishings have been kept bright, allowing natural light to reflect throughout the interior.

Behind the living room, kitchen and dining room, is another living area called ‘The Garden Room’. This room is darker and cozier, with a fireplace, a wrap-around bench and wood paneling. Bi-fold doors open the room to the outdoors creating a smooth transition between the room and the garden outside.

On the side of the house, you can see that sliding doors open the dining area to the deck, while the bi-fold doors of the Garden Room can also be seen.
