Color, geometry and the material choices of the exterior defines the Architectural metaphor of “old meets new” for the Cardiff Ranch project. A simple and playful design layout liberates the segmented original main living area to a light-filled open space that features a functional kitchen Island and oversized sliding glass doors that directs flow to a styled outdoor rear patio hang out.

The newly constructed pavilion, a 380 square foot expansion, allows for an angled wood ceiling master bedroom with clerestory glass, walk-in closet & bright private bathroom. The indoor palette supports the concept of a modern beach house with prominent natural wood materials, clean white toned walls and visible exposure of the structural element. Precision of these details are assuring to the quality of the trades involved. Outside, a large original elbowed asphalt driveway was replaced by a useable green space out front and a new permeable grass driveway was installed. Landscaping was dedicated to specifying low mow/drought tolerant/water wise native grasses, succulents and cacti.

Open Kaart Designed a Painting Workshop on the Structure of an Old Shed
