This is one of many commissions we had in Orange County. The open concept of the kitchen was a pretty easy task for us—we just removed a load bearing wall, allowing us to completely redesign the whole space. Our main challenge was creating a master bedroom on top of the garage without coming into contact with any existing spaces on the second floor. In order to do that, we had to close the existing void area. That way we were able to create a hallway entrance for the master bedroom. Additionally, they wanted a private balcony and a deck for their dream master bedroom, so the whole task really put is in motion to come up with the perfect solution.
To make the house more visible from the outside, we removed the entrance gate from the front of the house and created a full height arch entrance, so now the house has a more welcoming character when approached from the street.
