Architect Paul Kelley remodeled the bulk of this 1950s mid-century modern residence — his own home for more than a quarter of a century — by maximizing the residence’s sleek lines and retro-chic feel. He paid particular attention to preserving the history of the house, while updating and improving just about every corner. The master suite became an airy retreat with the addition of a vaulted ceiling and a brand-new bathroom and walk-in closet created from space borrowed from surrounding areas. The existing garage was converted to a studio, while a carport became a new garage. The kitchen took the combination of classic and contemporary to a new level, capping the existing upper cabinets with beveled-glass doors to tie in the entire home’s remodel.
