In this 3,000-square-foot addition/remodel of a 1960’s hillside modern, a dramatic, zinc-clad roof is added to maximize views of the sky and city beyond. The updated floor plan divides the house into two distinct zones, public and private, denoted by white terrazzo floors and French white oak plank, respectively.
