In the family room, "short ribbon windows were replaced with a wall of glass" for indoor/outdoor flow.
While the window openings in this cozy corner are the same as before, the architects tweaked the frames. They said: "The layout of the windows was flipped so that the horizontal division was rail height rather than obstructing sightlines when standing."
A new double-height fireplace column is the focal point of the new living room and underscores the room's graceful proportions.
Full-height glazing and continuous material use allow spaces to flow freely from one to the other, and from inside to outside.

The front great room is intentionally public; the furniture-like wall (inspired by Mies’ Farnsworth house) creates privacy for all other rooms—even with no window coverings.

Perched on a hillside in San Rafael in Marin County just north of San Francisco, the Harrison House was designed by Beverley David Thorne in 1963. The midcentury home includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and stunning views of the San Rafael Valley. It also boasts modern updates, contemporary furnishings, and a vast collection of artwork.
The remodeled kitchen offers views of the San Rafael countryside and its surrounding valley. The right wing of the house is called the "Executive's Quarters" and includes three bedrooms and an office space, all of which have sliding glass doors that lead to a 800-square-foot deck.

An Italian architecture studio offers an updated take on the vacation cabin. 
It's an ideal setting for a getaway: rolling hills dotted with villages and castles in Italy's Oltre Po Pavese region.
