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.
