This full gut remodel was realized for a design minded couple moving from New York back to LA. Making the transition back to sunny California, the couple had visions of keeping doors and windows open year-round. Modern, warm and uncluttered was their vision. Without adding a square foot, the existing house was transformed into a custom home. 

A compressed foyer leads to the redesigned great room. This is the one part of the house where the existing roof was fully removed to create a vaulted ceiling. The interior layout was reorganized with the central great room as the hub and two private sleeping wings were located on either side of the house.

Throughout the day the spaces in the house are ever changing with the natural light. Drawing from mid-century modern influences, the interior is designed with a variety of textures, colors and natural light. Custom walnut cabinetry and paneling is the backdrop for the couple’s artwork. Souvenirs and memory filled knickknacks are on display on built in shelving throughout the house. Our Alabastro chevron flooring, geometric tiles and textured accents from the couples furnishings complete the fabric of the interior. 

The great room features a five-panel pocketing sliding door system that disappears into the adjacent wall. When open, the extents of the interior space seamlessly blend to the exterior. The once dark and constricted interior is now a space to enjoy the view and gathering, inside and out.  

A California palette of wispy, colorful plants provide a backdrop to the new hardscape. A warm, modern sanctuary at the toe of an unsuspicious hill is now home to a family who is quickly getting reacquainted to Southern California’s way of life.
