2019 Regional Chrysalis Award for Historic Renovation


A young professional couple with small children wanted to dramatically transform their registered historical home, built in the 1920s in a style inspired by Old Hollywood. The family needed significantly more living space and they wanted to bring their own unique colorful style to the home while honoring its original character. The couple wanted to enhance family and dog friendly indoor/outdoor living and capture the amazing views of natural surroundings from the expansive backyard.

The historical registry designation of the home required exacting attention to detail in the architectural planning of this extensive whole home remodel. The front part of the home had to be preserved when additional space was added. The new space could not exactly match the existing historical structure; the delineation needed to be evident. The additional space could not dominate the existing structure in mass or height. Working within these constraints and several others, the new design is a stunning extension of a classically appealing design. This colorfully original home is an ideal environment for a couple who love to express their personalities in their living space, welcome friends and neighbors for indoor/outdoor family fun, and entertain with style.
