These clients had a strong vision for their beautiful Californian Bungalow, a larger kitchen and generous deck to increase their cooking and entertaining spaces. We were able to help provide practical advice to help them make decisions on how to resolve the unique challenges for this project. A coffered ceiling was inserted over the new extended kitchen space to preserve and complement the existing decorative ceiling over the dining room. Deck details were designed to relate to the period features of the existing home. Small period details and hardware were selected to tie the new in with the old.
