Construction Notes: Novogratz Design Team Chooses Ductless Zoning System for First LA Remodel

Cortney and Bob Novogratz are known for designing, developing and renovating properties around the world. Now, for the first time in over 20 years, the duo is taking their talents to the West Coast with a renovation project in Los Angeles. The project began earlier this month and is scheduled to be finished in mid-July.

The Novogratz were in need of a new cooling and heating system for the home and selected our ductless zoning system for the job. The system will provide indoor comfort for the future homeowners of the charming one-story bungalow, while maintaining the home’s unique aesthetics and openness. Five indoor units will provide individual temperature control. The future owners will be able to remotely control the units through a RedLINK Internet Gateway.

The 1,700-square-foot home has already been gutted and new floors and landscaping will soon be added. The kitchen and bathroom will also be updated with new cabinetry, countertops and tile. New trees and fencing will help spruce up the exterior and add curb appeal. Once completed, the renovated mid-century modern house will be a site to see.

This isn’t the first venture between us and the Novogratz. They’ve been using our systems in their designs for years. Cortney has even been a Mitsubishi Electric spokesperson, touting our systems and how they can be seamlessly incorporated into a home’s interior design. Special thanks to Diamond Contractor Sirius Mechanical who completed the installation.
