Green Scene: Eco-Friendly Projects from Area Professionals
Lori Dennis Inc, Los Angeles
This recently divorced Temecula homeowner wanted to transform his standard track home into a “one of a kind” eco-friendly bachelor pad that could eventually work for a big family. The client’s young son also made it necessary to have a durable and non-toxic environment as well as one that was aesthetically pleasing. Led by Lori Dennis, principal, and Galina Tramposh, interior designer, Dennis Design Group remodeled the entire home and landscape with every effort made to select sustainable materials and plants. The homeowner was thrilled with the environmentally friendly cuffing-edge result that still manages to be comfortable for their small, but hopefully growing, family.
