This remodel and addition complements a 1968 house initially designed by locally acclaimed modernist, AD Stenger.

Extensive setbacks and impervious cover limits forced the 1500sf addition to go up. Having known this Japanese-inspired house as a youth, the architect knew of Stenger’s portfolio, including an A-frame nearby. By merging the vertical, reinterpreted A-frame with the horizontal original house, the architect maintained balance while allowing each part to stand alone.

To achieve the casualness sought by both the client and the spirit of the original design, natural materials flow inside to outside. Pebble flooring runs throughout the main level. Cedar siding at the exterior wraps inside, complemented by heavy timber millwork benches, shelving, and countertops. Furthering functionality and design, a murphy bed, return air grilles, and sliding room partitions are concealed within the Cedar. A bright orange countertop recalls the home’s original era, while walnut laminate and concrete act as bold accents to the natural palette. The pool and carport inflect in the spirit of wabi-sabi to accommodate two mature trees.
