Remodeling both the interiors and exteriors, the team at Christopher Architecture & Interiors transformed a retro ranch house into a timeless estate that makes a clever statement. For the interior and exterior architecture, the innovative use of brick, steel, and glass creates unique details for the clients to discover and enjoy over time, while the interior decoration focuses on luxurious materials, subtle shapes, and bold accents. 

However, the final design wasn’t only experienced by the clients. Christopher Architecture & Interiors also opened up the house for tours, ultimately raising more than $300,000 for Open Hands Overflowing Hearts, a nonprofit funding research on pediatric cancer. Explore the chic property in the following slides.

    Because the property was located on a corner lot, Christopher Architecture & Interiors expanded the house upward, not outward. The architects preserved the existing foundation elements, basement, and first level walls, and added dramatic windows to increase natural light and enhance the relationship between the interior design and surrounding environment. The team then designed a second level and converted the second floor of a detached garage into a welcoming, cottage-style guest suite.
