In Salt Lake City, Utah, home owner Tyler Gourley transformed a formerly mundane 1950’s home into an impressive modern masterpiece. Bordering mountains provide the backdrop for Gourley’s home, which seamlessly blends mid-century design cues with rich modern materials and details. Spread over two levels, the home incorporates sunken covered parking and a bottom level that opens onto a guarded pool area and cabana. True to its historic roots, the exterior belies an interior devoid of historical reference, but focused on minimalist modern décor. On the lower level, a bar and seating area with slate floors opens onto the patio and pool through sliding glass doors. Upstairs, a kitchen and living room clad in wood open onto an upper level deck, overlooking the pool.
Throughout the home, liberal use of dark stained wood on floors, fireplaces, and cabinetry lend an opulent atmosphere to the interior. Paired with stone flooring and cast-in-place concrete fixtures, the home exudes a decidedly masculine tone. It is currently listed for sale at $699,000.
