LOS ANGELES, CA
This home had originally been a duplex with two separate apartments. We turned it into a large single-family home with four bedrooms and three baths on the second floor an open floorplan on the main floor encompassing the living, dining, kitchen and gallery areas as well as a separate office/guest room with its own en-suite full bathroom.
We pretty much gutted the entire house. The exterior was dated and unattractive the interior was, as mentioned above, two apartments that had many small dark rooms and no open space or flow. So it pretty much all had to go. All the walls came out and entirely new floor plans were introduced.
On the second floor we created a large primary suite which included a very large walk-in closet and a bath with both a porcelain soaking tub and a large walk-in shower. The second floor also has a smaller bedroom with its own en-suite bath and a laundry room. The front-facing section of this floor is made up of two bedrooms connected by a short hallway and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom This space was designed to be used as either separate bedrooms to be shared by siblings or a comfortable guest suite with bedroom, sitting room and full bath. One of the rooms in this suite feature French doors that open onto a veranda. This veranda was originally a closed in porch that allowed little light into the room. By converting the porch into an outdoor area with glass doors, it allowed light and air to come in.
