Bay & Gable

The redesign of the original 1930s home nestled in the tranquility of an Old Topanga Canyon neighborhood required embracing the character of its roots while meeting the family’s current needs. To meet the challenges of remodeling this historic home, the owners hired our principal designer, Michael Torrey, to provide the elegance in design while meeting their practical living needs.

Michael’s redesign imbues aesthetics that capture the natural surroundings and a sense of timeless architecture honoring the cozy cottages that once dotted the area. Michael achieves this design aesthetic by combining the architectural attributes from Bay & Gable style and Shingle style homes.

The bay windows provide an inviting space to relax inside while enjoying the beautiful California live oaks and giant sycamores that surround the home. The arched top windows soften the massing of the home and provide playfulness as well as an organic touch to the design.
