Palo Alto Residence
This project was the complete renovation of a3,500 square foot home. Through a horizontal addition and extensive subterranean excavation, an additional 4,000 square feet were added to the residence.
Working to bring the beauty of the surrounding landscape into the home, large panels of glazing were used for much of the homes exterior, while an open floor plan compliments the space creating a bright and natural feel within the home.
The staircase that became a center piece of the home's interior uses cantilevered wood treads, glass guardrails, and walls with open risers to maintain key lines of sight through the home. Steel columns, and exposed black trusses provide a contrast to the rich wood tones in the ceiling.
