We designed this Cow Hollow penthouse with the purpose of “seeing rather than being seen.” As part of a larger remodel project, we designed a new, modern penthouse that sits discreetly above an existing 1930s Mediterranean-inspired structure.
Klopf Architecture and Jesse Ososki Art remodeled an existing Eichler atrium home into a brighter, more open, and more functional version of its original self. This Burlingame Eichler atrium remodel is a 2,121 sf, 4 bedroom/2 bath home located in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Two existing homes on one lot became the ideal canvas for bringing together multiple generations and tastes to create a serene family compound. We transformed the larger home at the rear of the property to fit Ogawa Fisher Architects Principal Lynn Fisher’s family of four.
The project begins with the search of aspects related to a forest that can be applied to the design of this single-family house with two floors: vegetation, growth over time, large spaces, introverted spaces or overhead lighting, among others.
Coach house comprises a two-story brick building that was originally constructed as a garage between 1907 and 1911. It was historically associated with the adjacent mansion built in 1905, the rear of which is visible in the context photos. Coach house is situated on an alley and a major avenue — Florida Avenue — with a courtyard between the building and the street.
