Bonhill Residence remodel
The original house had been repeatedly remodeled over the years, including a significant remodel by Richard Meier & Partners Architects in the 1990's. The new owner wanted her own modifications, focusing on the expansion of the master bathroom, opening up the living room, reconfiguring of the first-floor bedroom, bath, laundry, and circular stairwell, and renovating the pool cabana.
The most significant portion of the project was the conversion of master bathroom into split his/hers portions with the extension of the closet cabinetry, including a beautician-style hair washing sink. An unused room was converted into the main hers bathroom. Flynn A&D persuaded the client to install a retractable roof over the space, allowing the southern California sunshine and comfortable weather to permeate into the bathing area. Privacy is contained from the existing exterior screen wall.
Flynn A&D also coordinated the installation of James Turrell's first elliptical glass work in the entertainment room, as well as a Turrell Magnatron artwork in a secondary entryway.
