This 1984 House Features a Beautiful New Renovation

Architect Kurt Krueger completed the renovation of a house originaly built in 1948 in Brentwood, California.

The project brief for the Westgate Residence, as the new home has been dubbed, called for modernization -- without increasing the home's size. The architects had to be creative about adding new materials and arranging space. The homeowners also wanted to ensure that the updated space would be peaceful, especially considering its location in a busy neighborhood.

Because they were designing for an elderly couple, the architects wanted to fuse functionality and design together as seamlessly as possible. They rearranged the home so that everything is located on a single level. The architects opened up the space by removing bulky partition walls and installing large windows. The finished home looks like a large, open-plan space that houses miniature zones within it.
