  • 1,200 square feet remodel/addition


This renovation and addition reacts against the existing house’s dark wood exterior and low ­hanging eaves, mirroring the older building’s shed roof to form a dramatic butterfly roof. The exterior features a rain ­screen system clad in fiber cement panels, a low­ maintenance solution for the harsh mountain environment ­ while a large expanse of glass on the south side brings daylight inside and maximizes panoramic views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
