The Knowles residence goes far beyond a normal remodel - it’s a complete lifestyle correction! The residence experienced a total transformation from the small and uninviting home in which this family lived, to one that now has a heart…a center. This new focal space forms the central gathering place in the home and provides high ceilings and abundant light. At night the home glows like a lantern, embodying a strong sense of warmth and openness. Some of the features and materials in the Knowles residence include: radiant-floor heating, an HVAC retrofit, zero VOC paints and sealers, a high-efficiency induction cook-top, recycled glass tile, recycled rubber flooring, reconstituted concrete countertops, FSC-certified eucalyptus flooring, high-efficiency lighting design, drought tolerant landscaping, and “iron wood” plank decking.
