This project completely transformed the character of a dark, 1950's, ranch-style house into a modern and minimalist home. The new, upward pitch of the central roof invites the spectacular view and broad sky into the central living area. Multiple skylights and acid-etched glass panels infuse the building with diurnal patterns. The lower level was excavated and rebuilt to house a Media Room, Guest Suite and Patio. Custom interior lighting was designed to compliment the abstraction of the architectural language.
