The client, a consulting engineer of our firm and a friend, had a specific program for the Renovation of his one-story ranch house perched atop the hills above Encino. They wanted an exterior renovation, a new kitchen, a larger Master Suite, additional Garage space for collectible cars, and a better transition between the house and the exterior, where the pool and the sweeping views of the Valley below lay.
The project and the program changed greatly during the design process, where the entire house was redesigned over the existing foundation, with higher ceilings throughout, and the perimeter was expanded where the topography permitted.
