When a ranch-style home nestled in the Hollywood Hills was listed for sale by its original owner and builder, Ryan Brown, head of the Brown Design Group, and partner Diego Monchamp, also a designer, jumped at the chance to transform the classic space. “The original owners had lovingly kept it in its original condition for over 60 years,” Brown says of the three-bedroom home.
Though the couple appreciated the home’s midcentury pedigree, a major renovation was necessary to suit their lifestyle and make the home livable for the couple and their eight-year-old daughter. By creating an open-plan space and reconfiguring the homes private rooms, the family created a modern home furnished with period pieces, which honors the house’s origins while meeting their needs.
