Bringing the outside, in
Centoni partnered with our clients to seismically evaluate and incorporate voluntary structural upgrades into this noble 1885 Victorian.
The results added a series of steel beams and frames, which allowed for the integration of a bi-fold patio door.
The project included a light study and the development of a custom awning to manage excessive sun beaming into the kitchen. The kitchen now has the benefit of a light filled room without the uncomfortable glare.
Our clients have peace of mind, while enjoying unfettered access to their classically landscaped English garden.
