Pasadena, CA

This stately house sits properly on a beautiful tree lined street, and by all accounts the approach to the front door and even the public areas inside are stunning…and then you walk into the kitchen and private areas of the house.  The existing kitchen is small and  cramped with no connection to the rest of the spaces, and there is no link to the backyard.  While common place in 1914, the current owners wanted to incorporate the old and the new ways of living, entertaining and moving through their house.  The resulting design is a true marriage of old and new ways of living.
