Client Brief: Custom addition/remodel for a blended family of five; active outdoor lifestyle; entertaining is a high priority
Unique Features & Challenges: the existing house was in very bad shape; the original mid-century design had been muddled over time. The existing site was completely undeveloped (rear yard) and topography was a formidable challenge. The solution for the site lay in how best to create outdoor space on a steep slope. Challenge of the house was to strip away the additive layers and reduce/enhance the original modernist features of the design with a transitional mindset for the interiors.
