The new three story addition and redevelopment of the original floor plans were designed to create a remarkably welcoming and well-lit house characterized by its open relationship to the landscape out back. The entrance is flooded with sunlight from the 2 story light well that hovers over the open staircase. Rich brown wood flooring leads to the oversized kitchen and extends to the deck that overlooks the garden. On the ground level a stained concrete floor passes through floor to ceiling glass sliding doors onto the exterior deck and steps into the green oasis, showcased with terraced plantings and framed by horizontal slated redwood planks. The upper floor contains the bedrooms that are separated and lighted by the atrium.
