When the clients purchased a traditional estate located in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, many of the interior spaces designed in the early part of the last century were not suited to their contemporary lifestyle.  The design intent was to update the residence while maintaining its original historic character.  On the first floor, several rooms were combined to create a large kitchen and breakfast area, and a new laundry room was added.  The project included modifying other living spaces on the first and second floors, and refurbishing all bathrooms.  The new kitchen was featured on HGTV’s “I Want that Kitchen”.
