The 1950’s residence was completely rebuilt from the foundation up to include a 2,050 sq. ft. second story. The primary goal was to optimize the original footprint of the existing home and to rework the floor plan to focus on a dramatic centralized two-story entry. The hillside site originally allowed for very little exterior space with a steep slope terminating directly at the rear of the house. The challenge from the beginning was to maximize the hardscape and landscape areas at the rear of the house to include a pool, a yard, and exterior living space. The Green Oak residence focuses on modern minimal casework details with a distinct emphasis on textures and materials.
