Classic California Bungalow and Modern Art Studio

Description

Classic California Bungalow and Modern Art Studio by Peter Tolkin, AIA. Contrary to popular belief, today’s casual open plan program, which so characterizes modern California living and convenience, did not begin with the modern movement, but rather during the earlier Craftsman boom. The popular book Bungalows by Henry Saylor, published in 1911 celebrated efficiency, practical use of space, and the open floor plan. A rash of bungalow plan books followed featuring open plan interiors. This was the genesis of this 1912 classic craftsman bungalow. Set within award winning gardens, the residence with a significant portion of its historic fabric intact, features a lightened interior space that enhances the modernism of the open plan. Kitchen and bath have been tastefully updated. The back garden invites casual entertaining, and incorporates the original craftsman garage, and a detached artist’s studio constructed of egalitarian materials exemplifies Tolkin’s creativeness in design.
