THE STORY BEHIND THE PROJECT

The homeowner for this project was inspired by the colors of the Mediterranean and Hawaii. I set out to bring in color and natural light, and also open up the space of the home. Originally, a courtyard existed off the kitchen. I took space from that original courtyard exterior and brought it inside to double the size of the kitchen. By enclosing the courtyard exterior portion of house, I was able to add a custom roof top deck and a third story viewing deck.

The real beauty of the home lies in the kitchen, where an incredibly unique geode countertop lives on the kitchen island. The countertop is custom made 1/2″ thick sliced geode imported from Israel, and features blues, greens, and purples reminiscent of the Mediterranean and Hawaii.
