An Entire House Redo Fits Both Owner and House
What: Total remodel of a 5000 square foot house, in two phases back to back, while occupied.
Where: A house built in Piedmont CA in1951 on a sloping lot with views, with a roof and general massing suggestive of a Japanese house; all this combined with the materials of a California Ranch, Modernist detailing, and an open plan.
How: Capitalize on the generously proportioned public rooms with their strong horizontal lines, while opening up the kitchen and baths, which had become a warren of cramped spaces. Customize finishes and details to bring a sense of warmth and calmness.
