MINIMALISM

A couple with two teenagers moved to a San Diego suburb for a family-centric life. The husband is an engineer from Switzerland, the wife is a ballerina/choreographer, and they were both accustomed to a more cultured lifestyle. Now surrounded by homes with similar layouts in the suburban tradition, they wanted to dramatically change their living space, transforming its standard interior while retaining its sense of place. Large family gatherings are an essential aspect of the couple’s lifestyle. They also share a deep appreciation for very clean, open, and uncluttered design with European simplicity. The original kitchen had just one way in and one way out. A total transformation of the existing kitchen and living space, which was dark and difficult to navigate, was required.
