Totally transformed

Jul 26, 2019 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our Riviera Avenue Residence project is a remodel and addition, and the changes are dramatic, yet true to the original home's Asian and midcentury modern roots. We added a new garage in the front, and embraced the compact space between the two buildings by creating a courtyard with a framed view of the sky in the middle. Warmed by new cedar soffits, it should make for a lovely entry.⁠
