The client owned a large, late 90’s spec house in a Silicon Valley suburb and wanted to tone it down and eliminate some of the oddities, such as multiple level changes on the first floor and unnecessary ornament. KPa+d simplified the plan, opened up the rear wall to the garden and unified the finishes and improved the quality of natural light and proportions. The remodeled home has more integrity and an improved connection to its beautiful garden.
