It doesn’t matter where restoration may occur around the world, they all represent the opportunity to reinvent yourself and create new trends. Today’s feature showcases a modern renovation done in Cambridge, Massachusetts that transforms a historic dwelling into an even more memorable place. Thanks to Aamodt / Plumb Architects, we are able to witness this American home get upgraded to new heights.
We are first introduced to the process of this modern renovation with the kitchen and dining room areas. The enlarged windows wrap around the dining room table in a way that brilliantly captures the soft light emanating from the ballooned overhead lighting. This results in a stunning cast of nature’s backyard that extends to the kitchen. The wood tables, chairs and kitchen island bring a rustic feel to the place. While we exit this area, a sturdy wooden shelve unit is present that includes odds and ends that seem to come from all around the world. Journeying upstairs reveals a massive bedroom made from the former rooms. Walking down the hallway to the bathroom also reveals more storage systems and a place for art pieces as well. The bathroom gives us a feel of a sauna setting in the woods without the heat with its deep-seated tub and frosted shower.
The modern renovation of this home does an amazing job of converting this place into one that celebrates art, relics and family.
