Grand Prairie-Craftsman

Alameda, California

Saikley Architects was commissioned to renovate and restore this spectacular home with a light touch, making only minor modifications to the floor plan to make it functional for the family’s needs. One of Alameda’s iconic houses, this mix of Prairie and Craftsman styles is full of lovely details such as leaded glass and hand painted windows, original woodwork and built-ins which were largely intact, and a huge wraparound porch with its original mosaic tile floor. Saikley Architects worked closely with Buestad Construction to replicate original details at remodeled areas and restore the old finishes. New materials are simple and in keeping with the period of the house. All systems were upgraded to modernize the house.
