Villa Cali

"Villa Cali"

Albert Steinberg House, Raymond Lambert, AIA 1969-1971

Renovation, Eddie Maestri, AIA 2020-2021

 “To the studs” renovation of an iconic 1971 New Formalist home on a half-acre waterfront lot in Preston Hollow.  This home remained in mostly original condition, allowing for a blank canvas of well-preserved details and room for imagination. 

We paid careful attention to the original architect’s design intent, as well as studied photographs of the home from the 1970s to understand how the home was decorated and functioned in its early years.  Our goal was to preserve key design elements while making the home functional for today. 

Our design solution is a Maximalist interior design full of patterns, textures, a mixture of glossy and matte finishes, and big impact statements.  Inspired by Beverly Hills and Palm Springs glamour and destinations around the globe, the spaces are curated with heirloom pieces, Maestri originals, and beautiful objects and original art to make the spaces feel as personal as possible.
