Holt Residence - Los Angeles, CA
The Holt Residence was a typical one-story, 1940’s Los Angeles bungalow house with small, individual rooms closed off from both each other and the outdoors. We remodeled the home to create one large open kitchen, dining and den area that also opened to the backyard and the formal Living Room. Where previous sight lines within the house were limited by the separate rooms, long vistas through the house and to the outdoors were created. Taking advantage of the climate and lifestyle, the rear wall of the main public living area is now mostly glass and opens upon a new outdoor dining area.
The master bathroom was relocated to the back of the property making way for access to the backyard and creating a better circulation flow for the whole home. A new Master Suite, with a sizable walk-in closet and a bathroom with a double vanity and marble shower tile, is situated at the rear of the house.
The entry was transformed as well, with a new awning and concrete tile patio that provides a welcoming place to sit at the front of the house. New windows, doors, stucco topcoat, gutters and trim make the house look and feel almost completely new.
