PRIVATE RESIDENCE    Laguna Beach  CA
in association with DSE Architecture

A remodel and addition to an early 1970's era house. Due to stringent site and view restrictions, the original roof height could not be raised at the front of the site and the original footprint could not be extended substantially to the front or sides.  To meet the Clients needs, the original footprint was enlarged to the extent allowed and a larger garage and storage area was excavated under the existing garage, which was remodeled into a Master Bedroom Suite.

View of the existing house from the street.  Although inhabited, upkeep of the house had been neglected for several years.
