Moraga Residence

This modest ranch style home needed a serious face-lift. The clients’ existing kitchen layout blocked the exterior’s breathtaking views and separated the adjacent family room. The structural walls remained but the large double-sided brick fireplace was removed and replaced with a curved bar area, opening up the floor plan and allowing for a more casual dining experience. Great for entertaining!

Maintaining the original architecture of the home but by relocating a few of the appliances and increasing the storage space, we significantly improved the homeowners’ entertaining lifestyle. The kitchen design features warm wood tones and concrete countertops with hand blown glass backsplash tiles. Wood floors throughout the interior provide a sense of continuity into the dining and living room. The overall remodel was a successful transformation to the heart of the home.
