Renovating a traditional Craftsman with modern touches:
Repair and preserve historic features while upgrading and modernizing building systems. In Alameda, California, Grand Prairie-Craftsman is one of the city’s most iconic houses, mixing Prairie and Craftsman styles. We reimagined their home with a light touch; we made only minor modifications to the floor plan to meet the family’s needs to refurbish and replicate the home’s original woodwork.
Fostering an indoor-outdoor connection:
Modernize with new French doors open from the kitchen onto new bi- level deck that serves as a functional outdoor living space with access to a garden, while another set of French doors open from an upstairs bedroom onto a private high deck overlooking the garden. We also provided the future owner with house plans showing design possibilities for an addition with a master suite.
