Holly Vista Residence, Pasadena, California
The owners of this mid-century post-and-beam Pasadena house overlooking the Arroyo Seco asked us to add onto and adapt the house to meet their current needs. The renovation infused the home with a contemporary aesthetic while retaining the home’s original character (reminiscent of Cliff May’s Ranch-style houses). The project includes an extension to the master bedroom, a new outdoor living room, and updates to the pool, pool house, landscape, and hardscape. We were also asked to design and fabricate custom cabinetry for the home office and an aluminum and glass table for the dining room.
