RSF Modern

JLC was charged with a major face lift of this one-of-a-kind custom home.  Originally built in 1997, the overall structure of the home allowed for design features that would not otherwise be approved under strict Rancho Santa Fe design guidelines.  Exterior materials include stucco and glass walls, a new aluminum fascia and wood T&G soffits.  The new railings are defined by horizontal steel rods and a wood cap.  The rear courtyard was also renovated with a completely refinished pool, new hardscape and a custom cast-in-place concrete fireplace.


From the homeowner:
“Jean-Louis and Tyler are incredibly talented architects and more importantly in my opinion, nice and honest people. They re-designed an adobe house into a modern masterpiece and worked effectively with the RSF art jury to get it approved (which is no small feat). They were readily available, responding quickly to our emails and phone calls. They genuinely felt bad when we had trouble with our contractors, and came to weekly meetings to try to move construction along. We switched contractors for the exterior renovations and they worked well with the new company who they had never worked with previously. They will be “My Architects” for all future projects.”
