This ranch house makeover successfully melds Spanish and contemporary architecture and captures the family’s vibrant spirit. The 800 square foot addition provides a new kitchen and dining room open to an existing living room, as well as a new guest bedroom, bathroom and laundry room.

The expanded entry area with a new roofline, exterior arched foyer and Mediterranean garden define the home’s transformed entrance. Views and fluid access to outdoor living space are key organizing elements. Dramatic light and color transform the character of the home’s interior.
