Featured in CA Home + Design’s Anniversary Issue, the 1980’s-built home had quite a history. The clients purchased a 11,000 sq ft home that they liked, but knew would need major work. Low ceilings, dark interiors, and a lack of character exacerbated the effects of the home’s inefficient floor plan.
Thoughtful architectural moves and a highly curated interior design transform the dimly lit maze of rooms into an “energized” interior with an organic flow inside and out. Working with Erin Martin (Interior Design) and Scott Schrader (Landscape Designer), the stunning landscape design and courtyard garden now connects seamlessly to the living areas.
“Throughout the house, a preponderance of light—coaxed inside by new openings inset with steel-framed windows—is balanced by a mixture of contemporary and antique pieces carved in dark wood that evoke the family’s South American roots.”
