Who: Blue Point Architecture

What: Greenwood Project

When: 2009

Where: Pasadena, CA

What began as a simple window replacement turned into a full-blown remodel. This residential property in Pasadena, CA was originally built in 1920 and had been updated sporadically throughout the 20th Century, resulting in a disparate mix of interior and exterior styles from various decades.

Wayne Schlock and his design firm, Blue Point Architecture, were enlisted to design the remodel within the existing footprint. Blue Point set out to "establish a unifying architectural vocabulary that responded to the building's existing asymmetric form and provided balance." An emphasis was placed on creating livable outdoor spaces — extensions of indoor space — that mirrored and complemented the new open layout of the interior. As nature and architecture mingled, large, flexible spaces were established, encouraging unimpeded flow and making the home a perfect place for entertaining.

The Greenwood Project earned Blue Point the 2009 Pasadena AIA Design Award, and judges applauded the firm's ability to work within tight zoning regulations and to bring together different elements into a coherent whole.
