AN AWARD-WINNING DESIGN STUDIO CREATING UNIQUE INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN EXPERIENCES CURATED FOR EACH PROJECT.
This project was a remodel of an existing home that a client purchased and hired us to transform. When the project began it was a heavy handed Storybook home complete with oak paneling, cascading boulders cladding every inch of the exterior and very little light. We transformed the space into a clean, detailed modern home inside and out. The pool we designed for the project incorporates a zero edge perimeter with a sunken fire pit area and an infinity water wall with stepping pads over a water vault to get from one side of the pool to the other.
An award-winning project from the ground up working closely with our clients and architect to create their dream home. Mixing concrete, wood, marble and brick, there is an endless palette of finishes that join together to embody a bespoke home with open plan and endless warmth.
MODERN BEACH HOUSE
Malibu Modern Beach House to us means Marble surfboards, organic glazed kitchen tiles, crisp white linen sofa that envelops you with plenty of cozy blankets, soft knit rugs and cool artwork. Let the view do the rest.
LIME ORCHARD BEVERLY HILLS
This project is ongoing as many do span years. We work together and decide “what next?” We started with the kitchen…. For this space, I wanted to create a bespoke kitchen that looks like it could be original with a traditional home but with every bell and whistle I could think of incorporated from lift up mixer and walnut vegetable drawers to a custom Pot and Pan closet for ease of use and Wine on Tap. Herringbone floors, La Cornue range in Greige, Farrow and Ball paint in three sheens, six different types of hardware, moldings for days… It was a complex design that was realized through some of the best craftsmen Los Angeles has to offer and every time we go back to meet about a different space we get excited all over again to visit this special space.
Our first foray into restaurant design was taking a beloved neighborhood jewel in the super hip boho chic Abbot Kinney district of Venice, CA and creating a new spot people would want to come to again and again. The project encompassed both Interior and Exterior Design as well as complete Project Management. Upstairs we also designed and installed a Raw Vegan Culinary Academy for the same Chef who would be opening the restaurant below. We craned in olive trees to create the canopy for dining, hand selected and integrated a fully edible garden, converted a stand alone office into a wine tasting room, and did a full redesign of the interior. It has been featured in various publications and has been touted as one of best outdoor dining experiences in Los Angeles. Our design goal was achieved, endeavoring to create an environment that was fresh, clean and organic yet very well detailed to parallel the concept of the food the restaurant serves.
This project was interior and exterior with a strong leaning toward the architectural feel of the home. The renovation included building out to make a larger master suite. It was an opportunity to take a very linear one story ranch home and make it more dynamic. We designed an architectural overhang, mechanical glass sliders that pocket into an ipe wall… elements that would give the house more dimension. We designed an entertaining area off the master at a different elevation than the pool for a complete indoor/outdoor experience. In the bathroom, we wanted the continuity of indoor/outdoor living and created a glass wall to a private garden with a floating vanity and mirrors suspended from the ceiling.
This project was a renovation of an existing house. We designed the kitchen to expand out into the yard as an Orangerie detail rather than just an addition. The entire home was touched inside and out to create a new aesthetic with an elegant traditional undertone so it feels organic to the house and doesn’t feel like new construction.
LA VILLA CONTENTA
One of the most famous estates in the world according to Forbes and Robb Report, La Villa Contenta was a wonderful remodel project that started with the guest house and moved into the main house. The project called for scaling down a lot of opulent details while highlighting the phenomal craftsmanship this estate has to offer… paneling, molding, flooring, stone… it’s all there. When we first arrived there simply was too much to look at, and with an overall game plan, we focused on architectural details, lightened and brightened the palette and allowed the outside to come into the home. We renovated the kitchen lightly, removed some details, painted, made the island larger… some rooms remained untouched, while place like the theater got a total overhaul. This client has remarkable antique pieces to work with, we just added rugs, sofas or slipcovers where we could so that you could admire all of the pieces they have collected. Love this project and this family. Friends for life, colleagues for years now and a dream to work on.
A traditional Spanish home in Brentwood reimagined with a traditional twist. This project is still in progress…but is starting to look like a home!
This was such a fun project. Remodeling an outdated traditional and transforming it into an earthy modern home.
