Tour Organizer: Andrew Hall

A 2,300 SF private residence addition/remodel transforms a low-slung Japanese-inspired house into a modern family home. The redesign seamlessly integrates a second floor, balances natural light, and connects the interior living spaces with the surrounding gardens while paying homage to the original bungalow spirit. The design prioritizes the balance between existing building fabric with a new, more generous sense of space, exemplifying elevated yet attainable architecture. This project showcases how even modest updates can result in a remarkable transformation.
