The architect’s house, originally a builder house constructed in 1958 as a basic box, three major additions and renovations and numerous smaller ones have been implemented to create a beautiful living space. Our goal: maximize day light; create a strong indoor-outdoor connection; increase usable outdoor deck area; open house up and develop a passive summer cooling system appropriate for the climate; maximize view; minimize roadway sound; extend the life of the house to the maximum; create a beautiful landscape for the house to age with; and turn the house into something unique and very livable.
