This project began with the design of a third-floor deck on the rear wing of a historic home on Monterey Square and grew into a comprehensive renovation of the 6,000sf residence. The architectural scope included demolition and consolidation of several small rooms to create a new open-plan dining room. The new single-story addition connects the double parlor with the rear kitchen wing on the interior and creates a direct connection to the courtyard and an additional roof deck on the second floor.
Other project highlights include an updated kitchen and baths, the restoration of original plaster ceilings and details, and removal of non-historic elaborate detailing on the parlor level. The result of these efforts is a modern, functional residence within a historic envelope, enhanced by the owners’ eclectic collection of art and furniture.
