Kang Residence

Scope of Work New Construction
Location Brea, CA
Completion Built, 2016

PQNK had the wonderful opportunity to redesign an existing family house in Brea, California. The existing house had low ceilings and a Spanish floor layout, where all programs are partitioned by walls, which resulted in a cramped experience for the residents.

Within a project scope of remodeling and addition, we sought to accommodate all the client’s needs that the project permitted. Some of the client’s requests included rooms for their four children, sufficient individual privacy and a family gathering space.

With an open floor plan equipped with custom furniture, the living space also functions as a library and dining space, where the entire family can gather, study and eat simultaneously. The built-in furniture provides spacious storage for shoes, kitchen equipment, books, and clothes. With the alteration of high ceilings and deep hallways, we added a skylight to lighten up the space. Outside, we added a deck and building to enhance the existing greenspace and backyard swimming pool and promote the interactive use of recreational space.
