Modern Design for - the Craftsman Cottage
Originally a classic pre-war bungalow, the goal was to open and update the spaces without destroying or compromising the original character of the property. Preserving, recreating, and echoing the built-ins and painted woodwork of the existing cottage style design accomplished this. In the kitchen, high ceilings, a clearstory window, and sliding doors out to the garden add a modern feel. This modernization extends to the master suite smoothly tucked into attic space. Here, light wood and built-in cabinetry, and a pocket door in the bath make clean and simple use of the space. In the end our entertainment industry clients had a house that retained its many charms but worked as a modern family home.
