Victorian Renovation

When we arrived at this home we were surprised to find that the kitchen had been demolition 20 years before!  An example of an owner being overwhelmed when faced with the reality of renovation.  Because they had waited so long to renovate they pull out all the stops and decided to take care of the two bathrooms and laundry room at the same time we were doing the kitchen.  You'll notice from the video that the client opted for all the options when it came to the kitchen.

Architecturally Significant Midcentury Home

The renovation of this architecturally significant home in Palm Springs was a fun project.  The house was a victim of several bad remodels.  In the 70's the atrium and courtyard (an integral part of the original design) was covered with an aluminum screened porch and the atrium completely enclosed to become a den.  In the 80's someone thought it was a good idea to cover the original terrazzo floors with stick-on vinyl tile with a simulated wood parquet pattern.  In the 90's the house was given a pastel pallet with mauve and light blue.  At some point, decade undetermined, the walls were coated with a rough stucco finish to simulate a rustic Spanish style home, complete with murals of cactus! Our mission was to strip it back to it's original glory. Joshua Tree Place ▶ JavaScript required to play Joshua Tree...

Complete Renovation of Mid-Century Home

The goals of the interior remodel were to create an open kitchen and to right-size the bathrooms. The home has a sweeping southwest view that was previously only visible from the living room. The owners were very conscientious about using green and/or sustainable products for their remodel and chose bamboo for the cabinetry, quartz composite countertops, energy efficient appliances, lowE2 windows, and low VOC finishes for their interiors.
