(Mark Pearcy Architecture and Warren Cheung Construction)
The owners of a 1950s California ranch house hired
architect Mark Pearcy to rework the layout of the living spaces
for their growing family. As project manager and builder, Lawrence and his father worked closely
with the owners throughout the project's two phases. The
first half involved a renovation of the kitchen, living and dining
rooms in which all three spaces are open and yet intimate to one
another. The second phase included a family room and bedroom addition
on one end that extends 90 degrees off the main axis of the house.
The hallway that links the two rooms with the pantry and dining/
living spaces is bathed in natural light. Interiors consist of
dark-stained oak floors and off-white walls while the exterior
walls are clad with vertical redwood shiplap siding.
