Renovations and Additions to a Historic Tudor Estate in Pasadena

For a client we had previously designed 3 projects for, in refurbishing, repairing, and seamlessly expanding upon this hidden Tudor Estate in Pasadena, we took all of our design cues from the best of what was already there. Hipped slate roofs, shed dormers, black steel windows, smooth stucco, pointed arches, and meticulous finish carpentry are used throughout the new additions, as it originally was in the 1920's. In many cases, salvageable elements like windows, doors, hardware, and other architectural details were saved from areas demolished and then re-used in the new portions of the residence. Along with the additional bedrooms and other new living spaces created, the existing kitchen and bathrooms were all reimagined and modernized with the latest and historically appropriate appliances and materials. The new exterior dining patio, surrounded by pointed stucco arches, offers a serene afternoon gathering spot looking out over the sun setting over Pasadena's arroyo.
