This private residence is appropriate for its Atherton neighborhood. The home belongs to a busy family of seven. Prior to the remodel, it was a lack luster ranch house and the homeowner wanted a friendly, welcoming, charming home big enough for the whole family. The interiors create a dialogue between antiques and a more updated and crisp architectural back drop. There was much discussion of the color for the exterior shingles until we settled on a soft cloud white, sending the same antique but crisp modern message. The home is relatable, sensible and reflects the home owners style, wishes and requirements.

Pre-construction

During Construction

The complex, yet simple white shingled rear of the house reflects timeless architecture. This general face lift makes the home appear as a classic older home. A new second floor was added, as well as an extension of the master bedroom.

The homeowners were very involved in the revitalization of their ranch home. A new personality and a wish to accommodate the family’s busy life style were the priorities.


Our intention was to touch on the nostalgia of gracious older homes and balance that with a freshness. The design evokes both, and the end result is a charming, friendly, welcoming and useful family home.

The custom cabinetry in the new master bedroom hall reflects the home owners personality and personal style.

The master bath is a balance of formal and classic details and modern needs.
