The clients, a young LA couple by way of the midwest, came to us to help them make their house a home. A cute Spanish bungalow in a sea of other 1920's era bungalows in need of a kitchen expansion and revamp. She is a private chef, but you wouldn't know based on their existing kitchen.
The design goal was to enhance the bungalow character with durable rustic-yet-modern materials and amenities. Stone floors, custom white oak cabinets, touches of brass. A real chef's kitchen, top of the line appliances, storage, storage, storage, and custom steel and glass partition doors to keep the couple's two pups out of the kitchen during working hours. The updated floor plan highlights a central axis view from the front door right on through the back door to the new courtyard and entertainment deck. An aptly sized fireplace keeps the deck warm and cozy and the new detached ADU is fit for entertainment and guests alike. We can't wait for the first dinner party invite.

The backyard was previously over crowded by overgrowth, limiting light and usability. The new addition makes way for a courtyard and outdoor living space
