Code Red: Last few weeks

One of our favorite spaces at the Code Red House has always been the alcove beside the master bedroom.  It is a very special, secluded and protected space with a great view of the beach.  What it also does is create a powerful picture window out towards the beach from the stairs.

Encino Renovation: Final Product!

Drumroll please!!

We have the finished images of the Encino Renovation to show you today!  This was such a fun project, especially since we got to do it for a friend and his family.  I highly suggest taking a look at the before images of this house.

Here, we have diagrammed the floor plans to show the changes.  The “Existing Plan” is what was there before we touched anything.  The “Demo Plan” is what we took out of the house, and the “Proposed Plan” is what the end result is.

Here is another image of the Proposed (or new) Floor Plan:

Price, speed and quality are always the key elements to a design project. Whether it be a remodel or a ground up project, we are always striving for the perfect equilibrium. Here, we started with an existing ranch style house in the Encino Hills and within 6 months we completed design, permitting and construction. The end result is what feels like a brand new house, all while staying within our client’s budget.

The house now has open plan, revolving around an existing fireplace chimney. Most of the partition walls have been removed thus allowing for free flow, light and air circulation.

At each portion of the house, the proportions and accommodations change to fit the space, while maintaing a homogenous look, the unit ties the space together and gives an appearance of grandeur.

Since we believe that the kitchen is the soul and heart of a house, we have incorporated it onto the length of the house, creating a “storage wall”, spanning from the living room all the way to the dining room.

The expansive kitchen island is also a key element, anchored to the chimney, always accessible for preparation and for entertaining.

We used all new window & door systems, stone and wood coverings and incorporated off the shelf cabinetry, all to create a seamless, fresh and inviting design.

In addition to the free flow of the house, we have also spent quite a bit of time in material and product research. To keep within the budget and speed, we looked into alternative means to achieve the design goals we always strive for. This meant spending a lot of time with the contractor, fabricators and suppliers to come up with creative solutions.

His daughter’s rooms are super cute and full of pink – we love it!

And thats the Encino House!!  Thanks for following along :)
