San Diego, California
2018 National CotY Award Winner, Residential Addition Over $250,000
These empty nesters wanted to embrace their natural surroundings and dramatically enhance their indoor and outdoor living areas in any season, while respecting the significant architectural integrity of their contemporary home. With no land to expand on, a seamless design solution was achieved by relocating the kitchen, removing walls to create an open floor plan, and building a second level addition. A wall of floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors emphasizes the connection to the beautiful surroundings. The outdoor living space includes a louvered roof, glass side panels, remote control recessed screens, a fireplace, and recessed infrared heating elements for comfort in any weather.
