For this mid-century home, perched atop the rolling hills of California, an update was long overdue. Blank and Cables was called to create several magical elements for this special project. An enormous but elegant powder coated, mild steel and specialty glass sunscreen, overlooking the Silicon Valley landscape, impresses and protects, both guests and residents alike, from excessive heat and inclement weather. Inside, Blank and Cables employed laser cutting technology, to cut 7,000 holes, in order to create a free standing and illuminated art-niche. Several over-sized, thick, frame-less sliding glass panels that divide the living room and kitchen, were fabricated by Blank and Cables. At the home's core, a floor-to-ceiling blackened steel fireplace and a matching set of blackened steel interior steps add the perfect touch of raw texture and elegance to this hillside oasis.
