“After” photography by Michael UtterbachHouzz at a GlanceWho lives here: A Canadian couple and their three young-adult childrenLocation: Palm Springs, CaliforniaSize: 3,300 square feet (307 square meters), three bedrooms, four bathroomsArchitect: Sean Lockyer of Studio AR+DBEFORE: Original architect William Krisel designed the block home in 1963 for a builder friend, creating a U-shaped plan that wraps around a backyard lawn and pool, allowing all rooms to have access to the outdoors and views of the landscape. Over the years, numerous owners added their own touches, including heavy shrubbery at the front entrance that was trimmed back when the house went on the market in 2012.Renovating architect Sean Lockyer took on the project’s architecture, construction, landscaping and interiors. Before he tackled the renovation, he visited the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, which is the repository of Krisel’s archives, to look at the original blueprints. “We discovered that previous owners had already enclosed an atrium in the master bathroom and a few patios to expand the house,” Lockyer says. “Some of the patios were also enclosed in a wood lattice work, which shrouded the patios and made the interiors seem cavelike. We decided to strip things back and open the house back up to the outdoors.”
