Brown residence facelift alternatives

This is a revisitation of a quick project some years ago. The clients wanted to improve the extremely mundane appearance of their 1950’s southern California home. They were not sure what look would be best for them, but they knew that they would know what’s right when they saw it. Therefore, I provided them with two vastly different design approaches. Having alternatives is always the best starting point, because if one does not see what they like immediately, they may more clearly know that which they do not like. Below are the two starting points that were provided to them, and they found that they gravitated more towards the traditional look. These styles were offered to them based on two factors: Descriptive preferences they expressed and the styles of architecture found in the neighborhood.
