See Arch: Winner of International Residential Architecture Awards 2020. This hillside-embedded house completed in 1963 in Danville, California, bears the hallmarks of an Eichler—sweeping expanses of glass, deep cantilevered overhangs, and an embrace of indoor/outdoor living.
The siting and historical significance of the midcentury home was exciting to work with and this project was uniquely ambitious in its schedule and budget.
The full remodel scope included both expansive interior and exterior work while preserving the integrity of the existing mid-century craftsmanship. Several millwork features were added to enhance and unite the design within each area of the home.
