Together with the owners, Geoff Campen and the Klopf Architecture team carefully integrated elements and ideas from the mid-century period without making the space seem dated. They entrusted Klopf Architecture to respectfully expand and update the home, while still keeping it “classic”.

At Klopf Architecture we immerse ourselves in modern design ranging from more minimal / gallery-style projects to warmer, more mid-century modern style projects and any shade of modernism in between. We love architecture with clean joints, alignments that make spaces feel “at rest,” and a strong sense of flow.Bringing Mid-century Modern style to a Silicon Valley Home_1390 mid-century modern Bringing Mid-century Modern style to a Silicon Valley Home Bringing Mid century Modern style to a Silicon Valley Home 1390

The Klopf team helped them open up the kitchen, dining, and living spaces into one flowing great room, expand the master suite, replace the kitchen and bathrooms, and provide additional features like an office and powder room, all while maintaining the mid-century modern style of this Silicon Valley home.

Eichler and mid-century modern home owners who work with Klopf Architecture love the architecture, the openness, and the lifestyle that these houses embody. These owners usually need more space or an updated kitchen, not a new architectural style.

We look at these projects as a chance to “update the classics” by re-invigorating these homes to meet the needs of today’s families with 21st century lifestyles. These were great homes to begin with, they’re just outdated.
