Tear Down Rebuild Ultra-Modern House
Linear architecture, exposed steel beams, and floor-to-ceiling windows craft an ultra-modern dream home in the hills of Covina, CA. The house is open and light and engages with its natural hilltop setting. The project consisted of demolishing nearly the entire existing home built in 1978 to create a new home that has an open floor plan with a large kitchen and family room. The HartmanBaldwin team needed to work through challenges in structurally achieving the complex details in the design, such as the exposed structural steel, curved structural walls, and large-span window walls.
