East Meets West Residence

Lafayette, California

Located on the site of an old camellia tree nursury, the owner's of this 1950's ranch style home wished to completely transform it.  The original undersized kitchen, living and dining rooms were all separated by walls.  The bedrooms and closests were undersized as well.  The owners wished to open the floor plan with an emphasis on connecting the inside with the outside.  By removing a few walls and re-purposing other spaces, on open floorplan was created.  This seamlessly blended the kitchen, dining and living room, opening it onto the exterior terraces.  The roof line was completely transformed and new exterior rock work, siding and landscaping were added.
