A Modern Hilltop Dream Home in Covina, California

The innovative Los Angeles designers and architects behind HartmanBaldwin Design/Build have used the motto “Innovate. Inform. Inspire.” to guide their work for the past 19 years.  The architecture department is headed by Hudson Pruitt and it is his goal to have their clients think outside of the box.  He works closely with the construction department, led by Ralph Castillo, to create homes and other spaces that are more than their clients could ever hope for and beyond what they could have ever imagined.  One recent project of theirs was the Yeung residence, in which the existing home was demolished (originally built in 1978) to create a home with an open floor plan, including a large kitchen and family room.

The gorgeous views of this 1 acre property were the focus in the design of this new home on a hilltop in Covina, California.  This dream home is created in a modern style, which can be seen through its linear architecture, exposed steel beams, and floor to ceiling windows.  The Yeung residence feels very accessible and light due to the open floor plan and in fact, won the 2010 Qualified Remodeler’s Master Design Award!
