A great house renovation project is completed designed by the architect Dan Brunn. This living space design is located in Encino, California. To a design project, the price, speed and quality are always the main elements. The architects are always striving for the perfect equilibrium whether it is a remodel or a ground up project. The architect is started with an existing ranch style house in the Encino Hills here, and within 6 months the architect has completed the design, permitting and construction. The final result is what feels like a brand new house, all while staying within our client’s fund. By the architect, this living space is designed as an open plan interior design, revolving around an existing fireplace chimney. Thus allowing for the free flow, light and the air circulation, most of the partition walls have been removed. One could open the multi pivot glass wall on the den side of the house and the sliding windows on the living room side and enjoy a refreshing breeze with the free plan without the need to run the air-conditioning unit in the summer months.
The architect have incorporated the kitchen onto the length of the house since they believe which the kitchen is the soul and the heart of the living space, it is creating a “storage wall”. It is spanning from the living room all the way to the dining room. The proportions and accommodations change to fit the space at each portion of the house, while it is maintaining a homogenous look, the unit is a tie the space together and it is gives an appearance of the grandeur. Another main element is the expansive kitchen island; it is anchored to the chimney, always accessible for preparation and for entertaining.
The architect also spent quite a bit of time in material and product research, it is in addition to the free flow of the house. The architect looked into alternative means to achieve the design goals which they always strive for; it is to keep within the budget and speed. This meant it is spending a lot of time with the contractor, fabricators and suppliers to come up with the creative solution. The architect used all new window and door systems, stone and wood coverings and incorporated off the shelf cabinetry. All of this is to create a seamless, fresh and inviting the design.
