PROJECT SUMMARY:

This Pacific Beach home had an ideal location, but the panoramic views could only be enjoyed from the roof. The whole home was transformed to take full advantage of its amazing natural surroundings. The homeowners are a young, well-travelled couple with dual careers and an active lifestyle. They were looking for a dramatic upgrade in style and functionality for their home, but they also wanted the house to look as if it naturally belonged in its environment.

Significant changes were made to the home's exterior, including the addition of an expansive deck. A third level was added and the second floor was converted from two bedrooms to one master bedroom and an extra large walk-in closet. The bottom floor was remodeled to include a guest bath, guest bedroom and office. The result is a stunningly modern home that takes ideal advantage of its surroundings, while more perfectly aligning with the homeowners' needs and lifestyle.

The existing kitchen was so small it was difficult to use, even for the preparation of small meals. While the homeowners are not frequent cooks, they did want a more functional space, particularly one that would work well when entertaining.

When the kitchen was placed in the new third level of the home, expansive space created a welcoming and functional layout, integrated with the living and dining area. The client wanted a neutral palette of colors. The design meets this desire, while adding interest and depth with varying tones and shades of gray and white. The deep colors of the hardwood floors and cabinetry add the necessary contrast to bring design elements into focus.

The original downstairs living area was dark and cramped. The clients wanted to open up the space and add more square footage to accommodate their social lifestyle. The living area was moved to a new third level and the existing space shown here was transformed into a new area for guests.

Clean lines, expansive windows and a dedication to minimalism in the design make the stunning natural environment outside the dramatic focus of the home's new third level. This floor is where the clients now spend most of their time at home. Light and air now flow through the room, bringing inspired energy to the space.
