Spanish Reconsidered

Los Gatos, CA

Starting with a 1970s era poorly executed Spanish Revival residence, we stripped away a dark front porch, re-ordered the roof shapes, and added a window filled stair-hall. On the interior we opened up the kitchen and dining to the backyard and removed interior walls between the main living rooms.

We also designed the landscape, making better use of a terraced back yard, adding built-in seating and a BBQ area, and a cool fire-pit complete with large stones for perching on while roasting marshmallows.
