Recess

Santa Monica

Outdated zoning code parking regulations and a great recession drastically limited the allowed area for an addition to a small hillside cottage. The existing footprint was reworked, and a second story master bedroom aerie was added over a high ceilinged master bath. Pivoting and sliding doors connecting to the outdoor living areas transform the spacial flow of the remodeled dwelling - expanding the limited floor area outward to the front and rear yards.
