A modest renovation project developed into a comprehensive re-visioning of this beautiful Oakland Hills home. Working with the architect and interior designer, we transformed the property to better suit the clients’ lifestyle.
At the front entry of the property, we re-graded the site and updated materials to improve functionality and appeal. We also renovated the driveway and additional parking areas. Because our clients enjoyed outdoor entertaining, DTLA designed multiple gathering spaces in the rear yard. An upper brick terrace is now a multi-use entertainment space for dining, dancing and live music. The lower terrace continues the classic formal brick material with relaxed seating next to a tiled ceramic fountain and citrus trees while a grand lawn area lined by varied planting allows year-round functional flexibility.
