Project Description

The intention of this addition / remodel was to create an open, light-filled, large great room space from a 3/1 house into a 3/2 and by adding a bathroom to create a master suite where before this family of four was crowded into a small living room.

The original post-and-beam approach didn't align well, typical of a handful of original Eichlers from 1949. The design solution was to borrow the language of the later Eichler homes and make this prototype more "Eichler" than it was. Klopf Architecture added floor-to-ceiling glass, aligned beams from room to room for better flow and opened up the space to the rear yard / pool area.
