Text description provided by the architects. How does one renovate an existing 1965 Eichler in a meaningful, respectful way? This is a difficult question, given the abuse that Eichler buildings have faced over the years with an overly-aggressive renovation industry applying the current style of the day to these prized structures.

We decided to strike a balance between the positive, inherent qualities of an Eichler structure with modern improvements that enhance rather than compete with the existing building. The existing post & beam structure is accentuated, creating a layered composition of structure, wood veneer, concrete, and tile elements. New full-height sliding glass panels increase the energy efficiency of the building while visually expanding the space towards the distant view.

The kitchen is relocated to connect more directly with the living area, and the decks are re-built as extensions of the interior spaces. A balance is struck between new and old in a meaningful way.
