280 SF Addition + Remodel; Completed in 2007
Converting the ground floor of this home into a semi-independent, wheel-chair accessible flat for the owner’s aging parents meant expanding and remodeling the kitchen and dining room. A new elevator makes the 3-story hillside residence fully accessible. The new kitchen’s exterior walls express a simple cubist form, cantilevered beyond the building perimeter. A roof terrace above is perched among the surrounding conifers. Adding the elevator shaft outside the original building footprint simplified construction and provides easy access from the ground floor entry and garage to the floors above.
