Delrose Drive // Maestri Studio
Architect David Ludwick, AIA, designed this modern Lakewood home in 1979. The home, his longtime residence, is at the top of a bluff overlooking a creek and treetops. Maestri Studio reimagined the home in 2017 with an interior/exterior makeover and kitchen remodel. Based on Ludwick’s architectural drawings, the second-floor build-out brought to life his dream for expanding the home.
Recognizing Ludwick’s talent and the importance of preservation, Maestri Studio kept many of the original details, avoiding a common renovation mistake of removing the timestamp of the home’s origin. Maestri Studio built upon the 1970s aesthetic by incorporating mid-century design elements and a fresh take on key features such as the kitchen, connection to outdoor living, and exterior updates. A favorite detail: the custom front door with a brass starburst, which creates a more glamorous entry into the light-filled living space.
