New Modern Art Deco Home
The new modern art deco home interior was designed to be energy-efficient, using sustainable products, and to comply with aging-in-place guidelines for maximum comfort and safety. All windows and exterior doors are Millgard “Ultra,” dual glazing with fiberglass frames that are stronger than wood or metal, more energy efficient, and paintable. The floors were supposed to be stained concrete, but there was a problem, so the homeowners chose cork tiles for all of the floors, except the bathrooms and laundry room. Inspiration for this home interior was Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian homes, designed from the late 1920s until his death in 1959, complemented by repeated Art Deco ziggurat “steps.” This slideshow includes a selection of pictures from over 2000 shots taken during the construction.
