Hancock Park Transitional Remodel
The overall goals for this down to-the-studs, whole house remodel and 1,400 sq. ft. addition were to restore the original 4,900 sq. ft. Mediterranean style Grande Dame, built in 1924, to her former glory, as well as rework the interior floor plan to create better flow, and update all finishes and systems – electrical, plumbing, fixtures, floors, interior plaster, etc. The project also included expanding the original, two-car garage into a 1,000 sq. ft. four-car garage, office & pool bath.
The remodeled home features a new kitchen that is three times larger than the original and presents a much more open floor plan. New icynene insulation was installed in the entire building shell for comfort and energy efficiency (the R-value in the ceiling is in the 60s). Whereas every bathroom from the original 1920’s floor plan was a “Jack & Jill” (you could walk from one bedroom through the bathroom into the next bedroom), now every bedroom has its own en-suite custom bath with gorgeous fixtures and tile work.
