Project Description

Type of Project:   Whole House Remodel
Architect:  Ken Linsteadt [website]
Designer:   Carol Knorpp
Location:   Larkspur, CA

This historic victorian classic is one of the oldest homes in Larkspur. The interior walls are paneled in wood, with reclaimed white oak flooring, white marble and modern finishes throughout. The home has since been used for many photo shoots for Pottery Barn, William Sonoma and more. 

The Challenges

There were 3 main challenges with this project.  We had to maintain a certain amount of the existing structure and windows for historical reasons.  The house needed to be stablized and supported while we dug out a 9′ tall bottom floor were there had been unconditioned space previously.  The attic space had to be transformed into a master suite where paneling covers every surface.  A new modern pool was added with classic landscaping and a detached garage.  Our clients also needed the project to be ready for move in within 10 months of breaking ground.
