Darlington Avenue

A whole house remodel and 1,000 square foot addition transformed an otherwise unremarkable Brentwood home into a Spanish Colonial revival reminiscent of early Los Angeles vernacular architecture. Traditional clay tile roofs and hand troweled stucco adorn the exterior, and sustainably sourced, high performance Accoya wood doors and windows were used throughout. Outdoor rooms with fountains connect the exterior and interior, and the double height Living Room visually connects the two levels. Particular care was taken to research and integrate authentic details and materials. Traditional terra cotta flooring tiles were used with deco tiles to accent some floors; other floors were finished in hand-hewn walnut planks. Vibrant Moroccan mosaics line the bath walls, and custom stained walnut millwork is integrated throughout the project. All these elements connect the home to a rich historical tradition.
