The program for this project included an interior remodel and major expansion of an existing 100 year old bungalow home. The property adjacent to the existing home was acquired and the two lots were combined. Working with the existing craftsman language and modest scale of the streetscape, the redesign of this home minimized the bulk and impact to the neighborhood. At first glance it appears that the one story home is actually two existing bungalows connected by a modern glazed â€œbridgeâ€. Modern materials, simple forms and clean lines are featured throughout without compromising the integrity of the original bungalow.
Working with Ana Williamson Architect was truly a pleasure. Ana and her team were able to come up with innovative solutions to a complex project and were openly receptive to my ideas and thoughts. The whole process from initial discussion and concept to detailed design and construction was a collaborative process where I genuinely felt part of the team. Their attention to detail and level of service throughout the life of the project was outstanding, and I'd love to work again with them on any future project.
Ana's ability to meld modern design sense with traditional architecture was showcased in my major addition and remodeling project, resulting in a beautifully modern home while respecting the original bungalow structure and scale of the neighborhood. I really did get the best of both worlds.
