Pacific Palisades, California
2,700 sf

A custom remodel and second story addition to this existing residence in the Pacific Palisades, the goal was to create a place for a growing family to put down roots.  Wanting a contemporary aesthetic, this home is wrapped around a two story entry space with warm colors and wood finishes on the exterior and interior to celebrate the natural possibilities of indoor/ outdoor living. Clerestory windows light the interiors evenly and allow for natural ventilation.  A large working kitchen anchors the downstairs living area.
