Spanish House & Mediterranean Architecture
This estate was built in 1930 and features details typical of Mediterranean and Italian Renaissance influenced buildings, but the home’s irregular plan and asymmetrical facade point to its Spanish Revival influences. Characteristic of the Mediterranean style architecture, the South side of the home has an outdoor living space that includes a loggia with vaulted ceilings, built-in seating, and a walkway with arched openings supported by classical columns. When our clients first approached HartmanBaldwin, the kitchen was decades out of date and needed a serious remodel. Honed black Soapstone was used for the new stone countertops and stone backsplash. This traditional classic black soapstone is characterized by fine veins and flurried patterning, making the kitchen look elegant and timeless. To accommodate open wall space and shelves, recessed niches with adjustable shelves replaced the upper cabinetry, creating a seamless, sophisticated look.
