If the rumors are true, open concept is on its way out. With the experience of everyone being at home so much more the last couple years, there is a lot to be said for separating out spaces to maintain sanity. On the other hand, there’s a lot to be said for open concept design that is a signature of so many Mid Century Modern homes. Open concepts are great for indoor-outdoor connection and for entertaining. We rounded up some open concept areas that are just asking for a party!
When Rod and Cindra Stolk first toured this Palm Springs home 20 years ago, it was in need of some TLC. “The home was in a condition of extreme disrepair,” they say. The 1947 home had not been properly maintained and was not in original condition. It had undergone multiple changes and add-ons throughout the years. Read more about this home here.
New owners Keven and Alana Stirdivant take advantage of the indoor-outdoor connection of their Fullerton Forever Home with seating indoors and out seamlessly blending into each other. For more on this incredible home, keep reading here.
Dave and Jim’s Eichler home is perfect for entertaining, and they love to host. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and leaves a clear path outside or to a nearby indoor seating area. See more of the heart of this home here.
Gregory Wiedemann, AIA Principal of Wiedemann Architects, and his team brought this Maryland home back to life. There’s ample counter space and room for people to linger over cocktails and appetizers in this open concept kitchen/dining. The view is also stunning. Check it out here!
Homeowners Danielle and Cole St. Peter’s home in the Denver MCM neighborhood Harvey Park has a striking open concept heart of their home that’s also perfect for hosting. Check out the rest of the home here, including the sunken den where guests can easily get to and make themselves comfortable.
