Located in Sierra Madre, California, an existing ranch home with clean architectural geometry, was transformed into a contemporary home with an expanded open floor plan, improved circulation and access, and carefully placed clerestory windows.

Wood paneling provides a pop of contrast on the front side of the home. The two-car garage is to the left.
Materials used for the exterior include stucco, wood, metal, and concrete.
Reinforced concrete was used for the retaining walls and slabs along all grades, while wood framing with steel framing beams were used at cantilevered areas.

The building retains its original footprint; this was an important detail for the homeowners who wanted to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. “The biggest element I work with is to use the existing structure when I remodel,” says Juilland.
The facade has rustic overtones thanks to white-washed tongue-and-groove pine and Dryvit stucco with a limestone finish.

On a five-acre property outside Taos, New Mexico, designer Molly Bell worked closely with her father, builder Ed Bell, to create a new residence for owner Lois Rodin. “Lois requested that it appear as a grouping of individual masses, so that it read more like a cluster than a solitary shape,” Molly says. “I hope it shows that it’s OK to do something modern in such a traditional environment, and not to be afraid of it.”
