This project is the renovation of a house built in 1924, new gardens and grounds, and the addition of a two-car carriage house. Our clients enjoy the views this house offers of the Pacific Ocean but also wanted warm and useable outdoor spaces.
The design solution is a new outdoor living room created by placing the new carriage house and garden wall at the front property line. The kitchen and dining room have direct access to the outdoor living room, which features a grand fireplace for cool evening gatherings. A library with mahogany bookcases and wood framed skylights is made from an old storage attic.
