Residence in Pasadena
As one of Pasadena’s grand residential estates, this project involved the refurbishment and reorganization of the principal rooms and suites in a fashion suitable to today’s lifestyle, correcting years of neglect and stop-gap maintenance. Creative space planning, historic architectural detailing, and building system enhancements resolved functional issues and in turn, evolved to coffered ceilings, heavy moldings, tracery, and balustrades, using materials such as granite and stone referencing the original era. The estate is no longer the large and mysterious maze of isolated and dated spaces it once was. Now family activities and entertainments are easily enjoyed.
