Californian Dreamin'

For this remodel and addition to a house in Marin County our clients from the Washington D.C. area wanted to create a quintessentially Californian living space. To achieve this, we expanded the first floor toward the rear yard and removed several interior partitions creating a large, open floor plan. A new wall of French doors with an attached trellis flood the entire space with light and provide the indoor-outdoor flow our clients were seeking. Structural wood posts anchor a large island that defines the kitchen while maintaining the open feel. Dark Venetian plaster walls provide contrast to the new maple built-ins. The entry was updated with new railings, limestone floors, contemporary lighting and frosted glass doors.
