Saving a ‘Brady Bunch’ Staircase in a Midcentury Remodel

Despite it being the “second ugliest house in the neighborhood,” Di Bruning says, she and husband David Owen fell in love with the interior of this two-level 1968 Washington, D.C., home when they spotted an open-riser entry staircase that reminded Bruning of the one in “The Brady Bunch,” a favorite show of hers during childhood. “Inside, the house had a great vibe and a great amount of space, including two spare bedrooms we could use as offices,” she says. “I knew we could work with it.”

After searching for local pros on Houzz, Bruning and Owen found architect Lou Balodemas, who had done several modern renovations in the same neighborhood. Working with builder Highbury Construction, Balodemas and the homeowners came up with a plan that updated the kitchen and baths, and opened up the main living areas to create a modern, airy setting.
