Project year: 2007 | Location: Redwood City, California

The Myrtle Street house took the client’s love of clean, simple detailing and paired it with an environmentally sensitive solution.

About The Project

The existing house was built in 1940 and had a typical compartmentalized layout, with little reference to the site or its solar orientation. The new home opens up the plan to allow for larger gatherings and orients the rooms toward the exterior of the house, embracing indoor-outdoor living. Solar panels, “green” building materials and the addition of natural light are major components of the project.
