transitional-home-exterior

This project features a modern take on a traditional style home designed for a family of five by Von Fitz Design, located in Los Angeles, California. The residence encompasses 5,400 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. This home is a blending of styles —he likes modern, she likes traditional — the overall design reflects the best elements of both their styles. The design also need to be family-friendly, with durable materials and finishes with functionality for this active family. The overall aesthetics is comfy and traditional yet with an open and airy layout.

The family purchased this home with the idea that they would remodel it to cater to their lifestyle needs. In order to meet this needs, the design team ended up doing a full gut renovation, with only one wall left up during the construction phase. The project team created a design with a traditional aesthetic, integrating clean, modern lines with motifs — x-shaped elements such as the garage doors pictured above, plenty of white paint peppered by blue-black details.
