Hope Ranch Major Remodel
Hope Ranch Major Remodel

Santa Barbara, CA.

Major renovation and addition for a 4000 square foot residence in Hope Ranch.  The 1970's house had good bones but needed improvements throughout and a new master suite.  We made functional and aesthetic changes to the exterior and all the interiors and added a covered outdoor room with kitchen at the pool.

The massive Thomas Fire is the fourth major fire that we have lived through in our practice.  After each one, we have been able to help those who lost their houses to build new, more fire-resistant, energy- and water-efficient homes.  We have spoken with a half-dozen potential clients from this fire, and we are now working with three families on rebuilding.  Pictured above is the early design for one of these houses in the Ventura foothills.

Transformation of unfinished storage area into a 1621 s.f. idea incubator for startups provided the opportunity to think about a space combining the informal hospitality of a coffeehouse and the technical aspects of a laboratory for ideas. Exposed structural elements, concrete, ducts and pipes are integrated with new windows, translucent polycarbonate and wood frame walls with striking blue and yellow graphics. This space is intended to accelerate the development of entrepreneurial creativity as it transitions to a real world launch. In an ideal location on the first floor of The Mosher Alumni House, the incubator is part of TMP’s partnership in the SEED-SB programs. https://seed-sb.ucsb.edu/#resources
