1970′s Ranch Style House Remodel
Total Remodel: ASID Award – First Place Complete Remodel
A 1970’s ranch style house was virtually reborn into a sleek, contemporary environment with a loft-like feel. The remodel was almost a complete scrape and rebuild and included expansion to incorporate new dedicated sleeping, office and storage areas – and relocation of new deck to take advantage of 360 degree city and mountain views. The concept included a stacking of rectilinear shapes to create additional dimension – occasionally broken by curving shapes such as ceiling soffits and copper and stainless steel floor inlays. Perforated stainless steel panels act as background for the owner’s evolving mask and art collection. Honey-toned maple, black granite, travertine and pale green glass tiles complement the stainless steel detailing. On the exterior, custom light fixtures illuminate patios and stainless steel reveals delineate the exterior massing.
Studio H Inc. enabled us to seethe project through to completion and clearly, we could not be happier with the end result. We turned our very dated 1970′s low ranch style home into an elegant, contemporary and very architecturally striking home, both inside and out, and it has exceeded all of our expectations. – Harry & Marcia Florian
