Historic Traditional - A sympathetic remodeling of a 1904 vintage traditional home in the hills. Shaker and Craftsman styling were used throughout to complement the existing traditional styling and unite it with the residential needs of this century. Shaker styling provided opportunities to create new modern forms – like the kitchen cabinets – in compliment to the existing traditional/craftsman detailing.
Spanish Remodel - From the street, the second story we added to this modest and authentic 1-story Spanish home in Garden District of Santa Ana California is nearly out-of-sight. The owners wished to nearly double the size of their home with added bedrooms on a second floor, and they were insistent upon keeping the scale and comfortable feel of their existing home. The remodeled portions of the home included a gourmet kitchen complete with a private stair to a wine room.
Spanish Hillside - This 4,500 sf, two-story Spanish jewel is beautifully sited atop a step hillside overlooking the City of Glendora, California. This 4-bedroom gem has a gourmet kitchen, a three-car garage and a pool. The size of this home, its proportions, scale, finishes and details harken back to original and true Spanish architecture of Southern California. The home has sweeping westerly views to the Pacific Ocean, nearly 60 miles away.
Zen Condo Retreat - A traditional town home in a multi-unit development is transformed into a Zen-like Japanese style retreat in Beverly Hills - a minimal cozy sanctuary amidst the hustle-bustle of daily life in Los Angeles. City and canyon views offer perspective as the Japanese garden, integral to the public spaces, transports one to distant places. Meticulously selected materials maintain the theme: variable plank walnut hardwood flooring, zebra wood cabinets with black granite counter tops, shoji screen pocket doors, noir stained fir interior trim, and stone tile bathroom flooring.
Classic Mediterranean - Gordon Highlands, CA - 7,500 square foot, two-story mansion complete with a gourmet kitchen, six bedrooms and bathrooms, an infinity edged swimming pool, and a 4-car garage with an auto court.
