ON THE BOARDS
Urbane Farmhouse Renovation & Addition
Los Angeles, CA
Project Type: Full renovation and addition
Project Size: 2,450 SF existing home plus 1,550 SF addition
Current Phase: Under Construction
The Assignment: Expand and renovate a 1950s home as an “urbane farmhouse”, with special emphasis on designing for entertaining and family gatherings.
Currently: Framing is almost complete and the pool has been poured. We had our electrical box walk to review all outlet and lighting fixture locations; and a preliminary meeting with the cabinet maker in anticipation of the upcoming shop drawings.
Standout Details: Colorful architectural interiors with tile and custom millwork designs throughout (including full-height paneling at the walls); a new vaulted stair foyer tucked under the 1.5-story roofline and an inventive fluted stair apron.
Sustainable Features: Thermal insulation, natural ventilation, efficient heating systems, tankless water heaters, energy-efficient appliances, pool solar heat and PV solar panels, EV charging stations, permeable hardscape and rain barrels are intended.
