Mid Century modern will always have a place in history. Luckily Seattle has a great MCM community that recognizes the importance of modernity by embracing its art and craft. The new front door was part of a larger remodel but served as a reference point for the rest of the project.
For this Mid Century remodel project, our principle Sawyer, spent an afternoon in the space sketching details of the house for inspiration. The clients decided to leave the entire house in its original condition in order to preserve the MCM aesthetic, so it was up to us to uncover the originality of the design and express that feeling using modern materials and tools. The new, hinged art piece was built by CNC milling a solid-core mahogany door, handmade here in the Pacific Northwest.
One of the greatest parts of operating a design build firm is managing our projects from conception to completion. SML took inspiration from the built environment and was able to create an Mid Century modern experience every time the client welcomes their guests inside their home.
