El Greco Residence

A Home Grows to Fit a Family on the Go

the goal

Completely reinvent a two-story home and its layout to fit the lifestyle of a busy family with three daughters.

the process

Our team disassembled the house to the original framing. We reworked the layouts of the lower floors and added two bedrooms and bathrooms on the third floor. We installed new plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems to ensure the structure had the integrity to meet the client's long-term needs. The client wanted to keep her involvement to a minimum in order to allow for her busy schedule raising her children. We assisted by securing the architectural and engineering firms to pair with her interior designer. This allowed her voice to be heard on the larger decisions, while deferring the minor decisions to the expertise of our team's collaboration.

the final result

The home is now a haven for a modern family. It has been transformed to feature an open gourmet kitchen, a second-floor master retreat, and two third-floor bedrooms designed just for the girls.
