The hillside remodel takes a 1980’s DIY home into the 2020’s with enlarged, high performance glazing and calculated moves to clean up the interior space for flow and function. A central focus fireplace provides a three-sided anchor to the formerly separate living, kitchen, and dining rooms and a wall mounted fireplace transforms a leftover space into the perfect rainy day hideaway spot. We envy the elegant kitchen that hides some impressive functionality, like a walk-in pantry, with clean, modern lines. The best of old and new combined.
This project required a close collaboration with our team of consultants for structural moves like tucking too-low beams up higher and regrading some intense retaining walls for a more graceful relationship with the hillside site. This 2023 project is currently under construction.
