Before and after: Santa Monica ranch house remodel
Lewin Wertheimer shares how he gave the Santa Monica ranch house pictured here greater curb appeal in the latest installment of Pro Portfolio, our feature that looks at recently built, remodeled or redecorated spaces with commentary from the designers.
Architect's description: The primary goal was to make the home feel fresh and inviting with lots of curbside appeal. I wanted the overall aesthetic to be a clean, beach-like, ranch-style home.
Originally the house was a stucco structure with bold exterior colors. The house lacked visual appeal and charm. Although the exterior possessed some interesting volumes and the interior had a nice, natural flow, we needed to come up with a vocabulary of materials and design elements that allowed the structure to blend from exterior to interior cohesively.
