MacPherson/Nissen Residence

Sherman Oaks, California

This 1970’s ranch style house required interior and exterior refurbishment. Areas of work included the kitchen, living room, dining room, guest bedroom/bathroom and master bedroom/bathroom. The subtle insertion of a walnut wall redefines the unfocused living space into discrete areas for conversation, eating, and circulation. The wall houses an entertainment system, bookshelves, and display boxes accessed from either side. New openings, soffits and redefined room proportions were needed to correct the flow and the existing poor arrangement of spaces. New floor finishes, custom cabinetry, lighting, glass screens, and a stone veneer wall created a defined modern aesthetic.
