Los Angeles is a city that represents many various styles of architecture. I have a great appreciation for its historical architecture, especially buildings from the 1920’s. Currently, I am working with a property investor on a 1922 built Mediterranean revival apartment building. It’s had several past owners and granted, not always the best maintenance nor improvements. However, I’m happy to be working with a real estate investment company that intends to preserve the building, with the goal of renovating the exterior to an updated version of it’s original and for the interiors, maintaining much of the original aesthetics with a contemporary remodeled kitchen and bathroom (as neither exist to what was original). I met with the clients for a property walk through just prior to our current quarantine. Since our initial meeting, I’ve been able to start working on the design planning process in anticipation of the future renovation. Wanted to share the process from concept ideas to design drawings and finish selections.
I always begin projects by putting together concept boards with images to help define the ideas and direction with notes to convey to the client. These are the ideas for the exterior paint colors and wrought iron details.
Some ideas for the exterior landscape, including the client’s request for drought resistant vegetation.
Ideas for the interiors incorporating much of the existing aesthetics.
The kitchen will be completely gutted and brought up to date. These ideas reflect a whole new look.
Like the kitchen, the bathroom will be completely renovated with the exception of preserving a dressing area that includes built-in cabinets.

Looking forward to the next steps and seeing this project come to life!
