I am a big fan of H2 Design + Build (see here: 1, 2, 3, 4) so it's no surprise I am smitten with the renovation of their own office/headquarters. A dilapidated, 300sq ft box became a place I would totally love working in. The before photos are frightening - check them out at the end of their blog post.
A derelict avocado and citrus ranch an hour north of Los Angeles in the Heritage Valley, a Spanish Mission style house by the architect Chris Choate, a partner in Cliff May's office, bought lovingly back to life by Sarah Walker Design Associates. I find myself more and more these days drawn to old buildings whose renovation brings their soul back to life without eviscerating to enable modern living.
I am suffering from a case of serious envy right about now. I have plans for a little shed/gazebo situation for my backyard to work/hang out in but there has been no time to execute it yet (husband did just finished a raised garden that looks incredible - more on that as soon as we finish it up). This one by San Diego based interior designer Vanessa Matsalla of Studio Matsalla is absolutely gorgeous! It must be so relaxing working there with an abundance of fresh air and birds chirping....
