Atomic Ranch Model Chief Jickie Torres shares her perception into this new collection.
Q: Why doc a brand new construct? Isn’t Atomic Ranch all about genuine Mid Century Fashionable properties?
JICKIE: A brand new construct with Mid Century Fashionable fashion. These could be controversial phrases. For Mid Century Fashionable devotees (like me), the very best goal is saving, rescuing and celebrating creations from the golden period of contemporary structure. And there are various on the market to be saved, proper? Effectively for me, following alongside on this construct isn’t about abandoning that mission; quite, it’s a couple of option to broaden it. It’s in regards to the probability to look at what occurs while you method a design/construct with the lengthy custom of mid mod in thoughts. How does the lineage of MCM fashion get expressed with present day entry and skills? And albeit, not everybody has a chance to land the historic mod gem of their desires—many components can stop that from location to stock. However new builds are an entry level for some individuals. And if extra builders specialised in Mid Century Fashionable fashion properties, nicely, new neighborhoods might begin to look much more fascinating.

JICKIE: It’s a singular alternative for Mid Century Fashionable followers to recreate the whole lot they love in regards to the period’s design and structure, whereas getting the trendy conveniences that you may’t at all times renovate into an previous house. I wouldn’t love seeing an genuine mid mod home get stretched and enlarged or blown out a lot that you simply lose the integrity of the house. However seeing somebody create one thing that’s an homage to the good architects of the interval whereas constructing a flooring plan for in the present day? With nice storage, ample facilities, dream options and room for a way we stay in the present day? That may be a very thrilling and intriguing factor to see.

JICKIE: I count on that I, like anybody following alongside on this year-long journey, will learn to steadiness previous and new. There are related design dilemmas at play right here that anybody can relate to. How do I design a room that feels architecturally full, but elegant and considerate? How do I fill a big house and herald fashionable consolation? What design components can I deliver into the kitchen that make it thrilling but timeless? I believe we’ll get to comply with alongside the method behind these choices and get takeaways that may apply to our personal areas, it doesn’t matter what specs we’re working with.
