Conversion of a two-story building over the parking for a gym into a high end office building.
The client, a property manager in Thousand oaks, purchased this property with a building from the 80’s. The objective was to successfully convert it into an office building. The main challenge was to open the second floor above the Entry, which already had the windows and the vaulted ceiling, and introduce the sculptural staircase. This move reduced the rentable space, but successfully augmented the visual impact of the first impression.
New Pool Cabaña with a utility basement.
The client, a prominent A-list Hollywood movie director, wanted a Recreational space aligned with the pool he had in the property. The only way to achieve it was to cut the hill behind the pool, where a 14’ high retaining wall was added.
In front of it, we placed this eclectic combination of oriental styles almost like the background on a fantasy movie set.
This spec’d 2-story Mediterranean-style home was designed for a developer in 2009 in the very desirable area north of Montana, in Santa Monica, about 1.5 miles from the beach.
5 Bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in a little over 3,200 sq ft, with covered expansions at the front and rear, a luxurious Kitchen, and all the amenities of a house of this size in an urban lot in Santa Monica.
An excellent example of a successful collaboration between well committed clients, a creative Interior Designer, a quality oriented contractor, and the architect.
The subject of the entire house renovation/addition/restoration: a 3-story, neo-classical house built in 1879 in Hancock Park, and moved in 1924 to an oak filled 1.5 acres lot in Encino.
This was a Modern, one-story home sitting in the Hollywood Hills, in need of a general makeover.
Because of its configuration, the small lateral Entry was on the opposite side of the view. The project consisted of revitalizing the Entry by allowing more volume and light, renovating all the space around it, enlarging the Master Suite, and the other Bedrooms, while renovating the Kitchen and the rest of the house.
Converting an open Entry Lobby space on an apartment complex in Long Beach into a Leasing Office space for the Property Management Company.
The owner had started a complete renovation of the large apartment complex near the Long Beach University, and wanted to convert the original glass Entry Lobby into a Leasing office for the complex. Our project consisted of adapting the existing post and beam structure into a more formal space for the manager and two-to-four sales employees.
The owners were not happy with the scale of the existing roof and the chimney on the front of the house.
The scope of the project was limited to adding curb appeal to this non-descript, two-story house on a quaint street in Sherman Oaks, as well as a covered expansion to the back of the house.
A new porch - veranda with railing and columns were added to the front, to control the scale of the entrance to the house.
