preserving the art of home

When you love midcentury architecture, there is a passion that accompanies it, a desire to save the elements that set it apart, the unique pieces of period charm. This is where preservation begins. Many owners of Midcentury Modern homes see themselves as stewards. They are the protectors of their home’s future and the purveyors of its history. Despite being the mid mod equivalent of a knight in shining armor, these homeowners moonlight as normal people who do normal things. They bring in piles of mail, make dinners that spill and splash, wash loads of laundry and curl up on the couch to watch movies.

heat wave

I'm not a big yard sale fan. Years of running from sale to sale only to find baby clothes and brand new knick-knacks in neighborhoods full of cookie cutter houses did me in. One fall morning, I was running late getting to the warehouse and came across a sign that read “Warehouse Sale.” Located around the back of some storage units in an older area of town, something told me this sale in a nonresidential area may not be full of "new junk." The sale wasn’t busy, but looking around, it seemed I had been suckered into just another yard sale—until I saw a wonderful orange enamel stove with all the original pipes. So as not to seem super interested, I didn't rush over immediately. Continuing to walk as if scoping out…

authentic additions

SOMETIMES, YOU JUST HAVE TO START FROM SCRATCH. When Val Nehez of Studio IQL was brought on to this kitchen upgrade, she knew they had a lot of work ahead of them. “It had all the original everything,” she says. “But it was really broken down after 55 years of use.” Though everyone involved had respect for preserving midcentury authenticity, there was no saving what was left. “It was hard to have the confidence to take it out, because it was original,” Val says, “but the homeowners are huge gourmet cooks and the original space and appliances weren’t sufficient.” With a new vision in mind, they set to work blending the midcentury bones they were given with a more functional space. SUFFICIENT SPACE Their first priority for this Hermit Street, Philadelphia home was…
