This year an Arise Interiors home was a stop on the San Diego Modern Home Tour 2019.

What is Modern Home Tour?
This year the the San Diego Modern Home Tour took place last Saturday, October 12th. This Modern Home Tour is a chance to GET INSIDE modern San Diego homes and meet the architects, builders and designers that made it happen – and maybe even ask a question or two about your that special project playing around in the back of your own mind!

Why was the Arise Interiors home such a unique stop on the tour?
There were a total of 7 modern home stops on the tour. The Arise Interiors home was the most unique stop, because not only did Arise Inteiros design the complete home remodel, but Arise Interiors’ lead designer, Traci Taylor, and her family reside in the newly remodeled home. Traci and, husband,  Joe Metcalf of Arise Design + Brand were available during the tour to answer design questions or give insights on design projects.

Home Design Background 
This Bay Park home was typical of the post-war GI housing build at the time. At just under 900 square feet there were 3 bedrooms and one bath which created cramped in-efficient spaces. A master suite was added in 2009 and a substantial second story addition was completed just last year.

Complete Remodel Details
Given the home’s style was insignificant the design purposefully contrasts the existing architecture, while leaving some elements of the original home visible.The exterior is clad in steel which has taken on a rust patina that contrasts the stucco portions of the original home. The modern style encapsulates and wraps front room that still hold the tell-tale lines of the mid-century economy building.
