We're seeking a modern cosmetic facelift to a 2-story, 6,145 square foot California home. The house is actually very new and was only built a few years ago; but its current exterior design is uninspiring, and lacks that extra "pop" that would make it stand out.
We're only looking for changes to its facade. That means no major structural remodel, but more of a cosmetic facelift that can accentuate its existing architectural elements.
Our photos don't cover the entire house... so we only need designs for the areas that you can see from the photos (general front and back of the house.)
No need for plan drawings; just elevation and/or perspective.
Winner will judged on:
1.) The design is contemporary, affordable, and makes the most of the existing architectural elements (no major structural remodel!). This includes an accurate representation of the penetrations, finishes, and inclusion of material type.
2.) We are especially unhappy with the design of front of the house, particularly on its left side (the single "box" comprised of the garage, two windows, and balcony). We feel that making this element more visually compelling would greatly elevate the rest of the property.
3.) We're looking to finish the renovation in 10 weeks, so again, the winner must keep the redesign necessarily cosmetic, yet capable to driving clear improvement on the existing design. In other words, LESS can be MORE.
Thanks, and good luck!
