In San Diego we are lucky to be surrounded by many beautiful aspects of nature that we can enjoy year round. When planning your whole home remodel, consider how to take advantage of views to bring the calming and inspiring effects of the natural world into your daily life. Here are some examples of our projects that thoughtfully integrate the view:
Capturing the Coast
When a well-travelled young couple fell in love with the incredible views from this seaside home they decided to make it their own and completely transform the original outdated structure. The home’s stunning natural surroundings are now central to its welcoming, light-filled design. A bay window seat encourages gazing at the natural surroundings.
Panoramic views of Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean are now central in the design of this home originally built in the 1960s. The new open floor plan was carefully designed to maximize and frame the view from every vantage point. Upon entering the home from the front, one can now see all the way through the new kitchen and out to the vistas beyond.
Beauty in Your Own Backyard
After opening up a wall and extending an archway, this kitchen is now significantly more open and connected to the family room and living area. The new design combines thoughtful space planning and French Country elements in a dramatically brighter and more welcoming environment. Light flows in from new bay windows where the backyard view is now a focal point of the room.
Working closely with an architect is an important consideration when remodeling your home to take advantage of views. Architects are highly skilled in making changes to the exterior structure of your home, significantly changing your interior floor plan, moving interior walls, and adding new windows or doors. With the help of a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals, you can explore how best to open your home to backyard views and panoramic vistas!
