Avi and Anu wanted to create a home for their multi-generational family that included his parents and their future children. Starting with a typical 1960's ranch house in the Ladera neighborhood, the house gained a new identity with a dramatic entrance. The project included a new master suite on the basement level that opens out to the garden and pool below. The dated kitchen was renovated and opened to the main living space and included a new patio and water feature on the street side of the house. A pavilion at the pool is topped by solar panels that heat the pool.
