Shangri La is a project designed by RKD Architects. Originally designed in 1996 by Charles Haertling, after half a century this stunning 2,000 sf home was in need of a renovation; some additional space; and many interior upgrades. RKD architects was honored to be selected. This was a balance of integrating our sculptural vision with that of Haertling’s, while responding to the vision of our clients- a balance we took very seriously. We love this project, the clients do, and we hope that Haertling would have as well. photography by david lauer photography.
