This cozy residence in the Bird Rock area of La Jolla required an extensive remodel and addition in order to meet the needs of a growing family. The existing house being enlarged a few years prior, limiting the allowable floor area. The previous addition was designed to accommodate a second story, but there were complicated structural issues to deal with. The new design created an efficient and usable floor plan that added three bedrooms, a den, and a spacious roof top deck that captures ocean and sunset views. This project not only suited the needs of the family but also greatly increased property value.
