Taking advantage of panoramic views across the Santa Cruz Mountains, this addition and remodel maximizes day lighting and creates an indoor ­outdoor relationship across the south side of the house. On the exterior, the original boxy volume is broken down into a composition of different materials ­ Alaskan Yellow Cedar, channel glass, standing seam roof, plaster ­- expressing the relationships between interior spaces.
