Reviving a master plan that went dark during the downturn doesn’t mean pre-recession plans fit with today’s buyer preferences. The design challenge with this home was to retain the already-approved footprint while updating the elevation character and space allocation within. The result is a home totally of today in look and in living. Retaining the charm and character of Spanish-inspired architecture, but adapting it in a completely contemporary way results in a fresh elevation. Inside, great room living extends to the outdoors with the first floor providing spaces both expansive and intimate.

From the Judges
The project team did an excellent job utilizing the land and integrating the home onto the site. The home features great outdoor living spaces; for example, a side courtyard is tucked in, yet still large and very usable for future residents. The multigenerational suite, especially in how it’s located at the back of the site, is a fresh take and fascinating idea.
