Eichler Indoor-Outdoor Home by Klopf Architecture, Silicon Valley

Klopf Architecture updated a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home to better suit the needs of a very busy family. The owners have two rather young kids along with also are also professionals with unpredictable, busy schedules. The house also had to accommodate the needs of two live-in nannies who cover for the parents when they’re indisposed. With those considerations in mind, the owners selected This kind of house because This kind of was larger than typical Eichlers because past additions had been already been made to the house.

However, at the time of purchase the house was in poor condition along with also needed a complete gut remodel including all fresh roof, mechanical systems, along with also electrical, the replacement of dry-rotted siding along with also framing, some design alterations, along with also all fresh finishes. The house is usually super-insulated along with also has no need of air-conditioning.

inside the main space, the concept was to remove walls along with also add skylights to end up using a light-filled great room that will seamlessly integrates kitchen, dining, living spaces along with also extending to the outdoors. The TV room off the kitchen opens to a sunroom with custom panels that will hide the TV. When the TV is usually visible, the panels close off the sunroom to create a third public sitting space (in addition to the living room along with also TV room). With the kitchen completely re-oriented along with also equipped with an eat-in island, the old breakfast nook became a built-in banquette with storage below the seats, along with also the entry no longer opens up directly into the kitchen.

A previous garage conversion to a family room was completely updated to become a guest suite for one of the nannies. The hallway bathroom was completely remodeled along with also is usually used by the second nanny along with also the kids. A previous addition to the master bedroom (a “study” area) was re-arranged to ensure the former master bathroom became a walk-in master closet. The study was reduced into a master bathroom, along with also the master bedroom was enlarged along with also re-oriented to have a private view to the large side yard. The former additions were not built up to proper standards, along with also were largely rebuilt as part of the reimagining of the house.

The remodel takes maximum advantage of indoor-outdoor living opportunities surrounded by glass that will invites nature inside. Multiple sliding glass door inside the living area connects the interiors to the external surfaces, leading to an outdoor patio area along with also a landscaped backyard. A built-in breakfast nook offers a nice space to enjoy views to the backyard through the window. The Palo Alto Eichler is usually a remodeled single-family home with the connection to nature that will is usually common in mid-century modern homes. This kind of 2,375 square foot, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is usually located inside the heart of the Silicon Valley.
