This commission called for the transformation of a single-story ranch house into a work of contemporary architecture. A new artist studio and in-home office suite were combined with a complete reinterpretation of the existing spaces within the home. The new ensemble provides an open floor plan in the public areas, coupled with private work and living spaces for the owners. The resulting home supports a work/live lifestyle more commonly found in urban areas, here reinterpreted for a mid-century suburban setting.
