Architecture Design of Arguedas House

Description About The Project

Arguedas House designed by Seibert Architects, P.A. is a stunning renovation project. Indeed, the goal for the renovations was to bring into focus the unique and interesting aspects of the original design. Also, to bring a cohesive aesthetic and organization to the house, along with air-conditioning, still lacking after the many years of modifications to the house.

To achieve a consistent aesthetic, wall finishes replaced or added as needed. The patchwork of dissimilar flooring materials covered with concrete topping. Besides, missing interior doors and door jambs were added, and others replaced, to achieve a consistent interior aesthetic.

On the other hand, new windows and exterior doors installed. The pool enclosure replaced with a taller enclosure that aligns with the walls of the main interior space. Extraneous interior and exterior elements removed, and new exterior hardscape added. In addition to this, bathrooms reconfigured and skylights introduced above showers to bring natural light into these small dark rooms.

While not true to the original design in every material and detail, the house recaptures the spirit of the original design, speaks clearly of the period to which it belongs. Also, takes advantage of the elements that made the original house unique.

Essentially, the Arguedas House had become a patchwork of incompatible materials and unfinished ideas, both interesting and ill-advised. Fortunately, the unique roof structure made of Pickett panels in a “V” formation, was still present and was in reasonable condition.

The pool cage, not original to the Arguedas House, replaced with a taller cage that aligns with the walls of the main interior space and allows the roof edge to be unobstructed.

The Arguedas House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: This unique mid-century modern house – Arguedas House from the office of Ralph Twitchell suffered years of modifications and neglect. Doors and windows between inside and outside and doors between rooms, including bathrooms, had been removed. The original carport was closed in with sliding glass doors and an awkward storage area was added behind the master bedroom.
