The renovation in the Hollywood Hills consisted of updating an existing house that needed an entry, a kitchen, a new stairway, new floors, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, lighting, music studio, and cabinetry.
A glass gate was created for privacy. The front door needed tobe special so it was fabricated from reclaimed wood from an 1885 school house.This 5 foot wide door pivots to open. The roof was extended to form a trellis to accentuate the sense of entry.
The gate was a custom design, fabricated from standard aluminum extrusions and hardware. The stainless steel lockset was selected for durability.
The inside of the house was gutted. Old mechanical ducts and a cramped stairs were removed for a more open, grand staircase. Steel columns were used for support to create an open plan.
the stair was designed similar to a truss to keep the components thin and light.
The bamboo cabinetry, stainless steel counter and engineered stone was custom fabricated from FA design and drawings.
