The clients purchased this 1960s era Pacific Palisades home midway through a developer’s remodel with an eye towards pursuing a more aggressive transformation. We completely renovated the home to address the immediate surroundings, incorporating the ocean views and adding refined modern details.
To showcase the sweeping view of Santa Monica Bay, the living room’s French doors were replaced with large, clear-span sliding glass doors that retract on barn door tracks. When opened, the doors stack against a plaster wall, making them invisible from the interior. The dining room was previously cluttered with a number of repetitive interior wood posts which were replaced by two round steel columns. Prefinished Burmese teak wood flooring provides a warm, sleek finish.
Maintaining the modern, minimalist aesthetic, the kitchen was refurbished with a sophisticated Boffi case system, complimented by custom shelving and walnut wood cabinets. Each bathroom was also reconsidered and simplified with new walnut cabinets, glass shower doors and modern tile and stone detailing.
