                                Tasked with bringing one of the Alexander mid-century modern homes back to life, <a href="http://www.michelleboudreaudesign.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Michelle Boudreau Design</a> achieved that while also updating it for modern times. The original owner preserved much of the modernist details but everything still needed to be restored and revitalized, along with a unique and modern design plan that pays homage to the home’s storied past.

                                Rarely do houses that look straight out of a magazine also look livable and cozy, but <a href="http://blazemakoid-architecture.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Blaze Makoid</a> manages to make that happen in this East Hampton residence. The <a href="http://blazemakoid-architecture.com/old-orchard#old-orchard-details" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Old Orchard Project</a> began when a family purchased this 10,000 square foot house and after living in it for a year, they decided to hire Makoid to completely renovate it to work better for longevity of their family. The result is a drop dead, jaw-dropping makeover that will have you forwarding your mail there ASAP.
