The objective of this project was to transform the interior space, particularly the dark kitchen, into a light and inviting space. While the layout stayed relatively the same, every detail was reexamined. Through new finishes and fixtures, the house became a reflection of the client’s tastes, and gave the entire space a cohesive, fresh feel.
For the Dunleer Residence, the clients had recently purchased a home, which had an outdated kitchen and a dysfunctional floor plan. We gutted the interior to allow for a completely reworked floor plan, which allowed for all of the same function as before, but with the addition of a powder room. The interior was in a Spanish style in keeping with the history and existing style of the house.
For this project LETTER FOUR worked closely with the homeowners to fully transform the property via complete Design-Build services. The home had last been remodeled in the 50’s, with an awkward second story addition. We added square footage to the first and second floors to improve the exterior massing and provide additional bedrooms. We also fully remodeled the interior and exterior, creating an open floor plan, more comfortable entry and stair, volume ceilings, new powder room, new kitchen, and all new finishes, fixtures, lighting, and building systems.
LETTER FOUR worked directly with the homeowners and their interior designers to create this amazing hillside property. This was a full-scale property renovation which included additional square footage, all new building systems, new finishes, and fixtures throughout, and new beautiful cedar siding on the full exterior.
LETTER FOUR worked directly with the developer to create this gorgeous property. We were instrumental in executing the design and in the selection of interior and exterior finishes, fixtures, cabinetry, and lighting. The target buyer for this home was a young professional individual or couple looking for a modern turn-key residence with an open floor plan and indoor-outdoor living.
Here we are creating a brand new home as a modern barn concept in the hills off of Franklin Canyon for a wonderful repeat client. We sited the main volume with views to the mountains and created that volume as a barn with a simple shape and roof structure. We then inserted more modern elements by adding glass and steel at key areas, such as the double-height living room, entry, and stair. The design includes an interior catwalk overlooking the double height space and views, a beautiful master suite and a recording studio.
Crestway Drive, in the historic Los Angeles neighborhood of View Park, was a Mid-Century Modern gem in need of some polishing. At 4080 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, the homeowners did not need additional square footage, but certain refinements were in order. We took what was previously a small, dark kitchen and butler’s pantry and completely reconfigured, while also adding skylights to create an open, functional, light-filled space. We also opened the dining room to the kitchen and living room to create one very large great room with a view to the pool and grounds below. The downstairs entertaining area is set up perfectly for indoor-outdoor entertaining, with new slide-fold doors out to the newly updated pool, patio, and landscaping. We updated all bathrooms, and at the master bath, we switched the location of the closet and bathroom to bring in natural light and view to the back yard from the master tub. Updates by Letter Four include architecture, and full interior design, including furnishings, fixtures, and accessories, as well as full design-build services.
Our mission for this second story addition and full remodel was to convert a small standard bungalow into beach cottage with ample room for a growing family. We opened up the floor plan, with a clear view from the front entry through to the back yard and introduced more natural light throughout. This craftsman style home includes built-ins and custom millwork to be consistent with the style of the home and to maximize storage. Vaulted ceilings in the dining room and master bedroom help to make those rooms feel especially spacious and the soothing color palette speaks to the home’s proximity to the beach.
The objective of this complete interior remodel was to maintain the existing functionality and add a bathroom without adding square footage. The solution was to convert a powder room into a three-quarter Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Changing this reconfigured the floorplan, and in the process we updated the finishes and flooring throughout the house.
