A growing family customizes a new house’s architectural plan to accommodate their lifestyle needs.
A young family realized that their newly purchased Calabasas house didn’t provide the space and organization needed to easily entertain friends and family or comfortably relax together. An inefficient design forced them to live 90% of the time in 20% of the space.
Additionally, the kitchen and master bathroom needed updating with new high-tech appliances, easy-care materials and storage.
Their priorities were function, beauty, quality, and budget. The resulting home should feel airy, light, friendly and open; sophisticated and chic without intimidation.
By eliminating the first floor’s many walls, a loft-like environment was created with ample room to cook, relax, and entertain. Two islands provided extended counter space plus seating. A ceiling was added to the two-story dining room, allowing more second floor space to expand the master bathroom and add a walk-in closet. Even space under the staircase was transformed into a new bar.
By changing the house’s original footprint, they created a dream home.
