Project Summary

After owning their 40-year old home in Old Del Mar, California, for more than 15 years, our clients found themselves in an environment that no longer suited their lifestyle. Their children had grown from babies to teenagers, while their parents had aged and were coming to stay for longer visits. After conducting careful research and coming to the conclusion that a remodel made more sense than moving to a new home, our clients started the design build process for their whole home.

The home’s new design is an artful interpretation of California Coastal aesthetics, combined with contemporary notes and softer elements inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement. Significant structural changes opened up the home to light and ventilation while creating natural gathering places for the family. The new design added 1,723 sq. feet to the home, making a total of 4,341 sq. feet including the garage (3891 sq. feet sq. feet without the garage). Three generations now easily join together to enjoy each other and the comfortable and appealing new surroundings in their home.
