The second floor consists of a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a family room and kitchenette. It also has two balconies with views.
A major remodel and addition to a 1940’s cottage in San Clemente. The new house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and is designed for indoor/outdoor living. Most of the spaces open onto outdoor courtyards or the roof deck. The project is a contemporary design with the use of horizontal redwood on the exterior as well as an obscure glass garage door.
The house is designed to be sustainable. The remodel maintained the rustic wood ceilings but added insulation and a new heating system to keep the house comfortable all year round.
De La Grulla
This traditional home was designed as a private retreat with views from every possible lookout. The ceiling in this space is 10 feet high to give an open and large feeling. The dining room is open to the kitchen but designed to feel separate from the placement of the beam in the ceiling. The Master Suite was designed as a private retreat with views from all sides. There are ocean views from the front and side of the master suite. The Master Bathroom has French doors opening out onto the upstairs balcony with views of the ocean.

De Los Alamos
A 3,400 square feet Spanish Colonial Revival near the beach in San Clemente, CA. The house was designed to capture the ocean breezes and ocean views with lots of patios and decks for entertaining indoors and out.
Originally the site had a single story 1950’s bungalow, which was incorporated in the design of the new house, allowing the advantages of calling this house a “remodel.” Even though there is not much of the original house in the new project, the rooms and part of the foundation were incorporated into the project allowing the client to spend less on permitting fees and save on some construction costs.
This 2,900 square foot house has grown over the years from a small 800 square foot bungalow into a four-bedroom, three-bath home with plenty of gathering spaces both indoors and outdoors. The red stucco color pays tribute to the original redwood facade of the old bungalow, but also pays homage to a favorite French country home.
An addition and major remodel to an older tract house. The new house is a tropical island style with lots of natural light and cross ventilation. The new interior space has enlarged the living area & created an entry hall/sunroom. The old second-story addition was raised so that the new ceiling in the entry hall/sunroom is proportioned appropriately for the space. The large welcoming front doors, clerestory windows, and skylights bring in lots of sunlight.
This 1980’s small tract home was transformed into a larger open concept country cottage with traditional detailing. The house has a formal dining room with a wine closet. The great room includes a spacious kitchen with a volume ceiling and many doors and windows that open to the incredible view in the backyard.
This new contemporary-style house sits on a Coastal Canyon in central San Clemente, California. The house is 3,000 square feet with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The living areas, kitchen, and master bedroom are all upstairs. There is a roof deck with a proposed Jacuzzi. The house is clad in stone and stucco with glass and a wrought iron railing at the decks.

Interested in Lampert Dias Architects Designing Your Next Project?
My husband and I had a general concept as to how we wanted to remodel our 1950's style single story. Christine, Stephan and Erika have been exceedingly patient with us as we have gone through the process of figuring out exactly what we want. The design options they gave us were exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend!
Christine and Kristine have been amazing. They are very professional, patient and listen to what you want and need in your new home. This is our first remodel and have had so many questions and big decisions to make. I highly recommend them.
I have to say that I had reservations about working with another architect as the last one I had on a different project was more interested in making something in their style than mine and I felt like I was somewhat working against them, begging to be heard. NOT the case with Christine Lampert. I am 100% satisfied with my experience in so many ways. Christine is a brilliant architect with a huge portfolio of fantastic buildings in all styles. Our conversations are very productive (she KNOWS what she's talking about!) and she is readily available and responsive. I feel so lucky to have found her and I recommend her to anyone. Designing your dream home should be a joy and she has delivered that as well as a finished product that I can't wait to live in. Thank you Christine!
We found Lampert Dias Architects, Inc. 2 months ago. We purchased a single story house built in the 1940 and were looking for an architect that can incorporate the contemporary design elements we desired while still preserving the charm of the original home. Immediately, I was treated to a personal phone call from Christine Lampert. More than other architects we interviewed, Christine understood our ideas and was able to quickly come up with a design that made us feel our dream home can become a reality. Christine and her team were professional, courteous, responsive to our needs and have been a pleasure to work with. She was always available to answer any questions. Christine really listened to our needs and was able to translate those needs into a "dream home". We look forward to our finish project and would highly recommend them!
