So Barn Cute

Newport Heights Residence

Originally built in 1911 as the horse stable for a much larger home, this Newport Beach cottage evolved into a charming urban farmhouse as successive owners added on through the decades. Our challenge was to help the current owners find space for the new kitchen and master bedroom they needed, while maintaining the charm and character of the original structures.

Leaving the front elevation untouched, our solution proposed a sideways extension of the kitchen that creates more interior space and defines a protected inner courtyard for al-fresco entertaining.

“Anders Lasater was the right architect to help us add some space and modernize, while also respecting the architectural features and charm that made us buy the house in the first place…their attention to detail never waned. It was simply a pleasure working with them and the final outcome exceeded every expectation.”

The new master bedroom connects the main house to the previously detached back yard barn to enclose the courtyard and enjoys views to the new gardens to either side of the master suite.

Essential, reductive, and true to its original forms and scale, this little horse stable turned farmhouse is now the Goldilocks of the neighborhood, and just right for the happy homeowners.
