Catalpa Residence, Newport Beach, CA

2-story, 4554 sq. ft., large-scale remodel with additions

Awarded the best remodel over $200,000 in the U.S. by the North American Home Builders Association (NAHBA), we couldn’t be happier for the homeowners and all the ways in which our visions aligned to create this stunning remodel.

Translating the design vision into reality took quiet an effort but no obstacle is too big for us. The AMK team had to contend with outdated Homeowners Association rules in order to receive approval of the flat roof design and be able to build up a good buffer to achieve a “Zen” structure whose front yard neighbors a 5-way street intersection.  The transformation began with the remodeling of the existing garage and the addition of a secondary, 2-car garage, with a courtyard that connected both structures. Providing a private entry experience that immediately opened to spectacular views through the house, towards the Newport back-bay, the courtyard became a central feature in this award-winning sanctuary.
