A young family wanted to renovate a mission-style home in historic Aldridge Place. The home, a former rental property, had to be updated to accommodate their needs and worked through to combat the unfortunate renovations that had compromised the character and structure of the building. A master-bedroom suite was added. The Kitchen and Living/Dining areas were enlarged and opened to facilitate entertaining from the two outdoor terraces. A "cozy nook" was also added to encourage family bonding. The renovations were done mindfully of the original mission style, but guided to suite the families needs.
