Project led by Dan Maginn, FAIA while a Principal at el dorado inc.
It's a rare opportunity when an architecture firm is asked to collaborate on another designer's home. Such was the case with this renovation project, for Interior Designer Lisa Schmitz and husband Chuck, along with their two children. One of our favorite collaborators, Lisa has an eye for clean modern lines that aligns well with ours, and the resultant design is restrained yet bold...and minimal while being warm. The collaboration included both exterior and interior improvements. The exterior work included a new front porch and a distinctive gabled entryway. Our interior work included a preliminary vision for the kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Although modern in expression, the new elements are all carefully scaled to work with the existing architecture of the home.
