Project: Modern Style Round House Restoration, Alamo, CA

The project design program consisted of the following:

  • Preserve the original design character of the house in a more permanent manner and permit the structure to serve as a lasting example of this unique architectural style.
  • Draw the rich, natural outdoor setting into the architecture, thus creating a "living" structure by incorporating views of the outlying scenic hillsides, wildlife, vegetation, changing seasons, etc.
  • Create a warm and graceful indoor living environment that focuses on nature, with a clean architectural form rather than a more ornate interior that is separated from the outdoors.
Goal:Restore a modern style home to its original architectural character, and re-create the plant and wildlife habitat that are native to the site.
