Ethel Avenue Residence
When a couple with three young daughters stumbled upon an old house near their current home, they fell in love with its potential. KMD collaborated on a gut renovation to create their dream home of family-friendly, California living. A historic designation limited exterior changes and put the emphasis on interior interventions. The result is a 4-story home connected by a new central stair with a playroom and home offices on the bottom level, a living/dining floor on the ground level, and two bedroom floors above. Furniture and finishes reflect a simple, modern yet classic sensibility.
“[The homeowners] knew what they wanted and Richardson and Martinez delivered it: an airy, comfort-filled, modern-traditional house that fully celebrates the wonders right outside.”— Remodelista
