What happens when a classic Eichler house gets a modern makeover? San Francisco-based design firm Klopf Architecture have extensive experience with renovating mid-century homes and designing their energy-efficient modern-day counterparts. This time around, the team focused on remodeling a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home located in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
The existing 2,058-square-foot residence required an update to better suit the needs of a busy family. It features large glass surfaces that create a dynamic relationship between the inside and the outside, including sliding glass doors leading to an outdoor patio and landscaped backyard. This already established connection to nature typical of Eichler houses was a great asset and inspired the architects to further accentuate the advantages of indoor-outdoor living.
The house comprises four bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with the living area and kitchen with a built-in breakfast nook that offers a nice space to enjoy views to the backyard through the window.
