The location, the climate, the garden and the brightness of this single family house in Los Altos, California, made a Parisian family relocated to the Bay Area feel in love with the home.
To turn the house into the ideal home for them and their two children, it was necessary to undertake a total renovation of the residence.
The refurbishment included: enlarging the bedrooms, creating a new suite for guests, unifying the dining room and living room, connecting the kitchen to the dining room and upgrading the garden and the facade.
The task of modernizing and creating a sophisticated environment integrating the architecture of this California style home, while at the same time keeping the European spirit of the family, was entrusted to Isolina Mallon Interiors.
The modern and European style of Isolina Mallon, with origins in Barcelona and with years of experience in Europe and California, was the perfect combination to bring the two continents together for this project.
Natural elements such as stone, wood, leather, linen, and cotton have been used to create a light and warm environment open to the outside through the big windows and the constant presence of the garden.
The kitchen and dining room are separated by Rimadesio sliding glass panels, that separate the rooms when needed, but also keep them together as a big unique space.
Isolina Mallon opted to paint the sloped ceilings, formally dark wood, in white to highlight the natural light and thus accentuate the room height.
The kitchen design was developed by Isolina to maximize the storage space while creating a work area overlooking to the garden.
The great breakfast bar, next to the garden, is one of the family’s favorite spots. Along with the new deck, which provides a dining room and outdoor bar area, they meet the goal of maximizing the garden and outdoor living to take advantage of the sunny California weather.
