The owner is a professional cabinetmaker and had made carefully crafted changes to the interior including paneled walls with exotic woods.
The need for a third floor master suite and the frustration with limited parking on the street required a third floor addition and below-grade parking without affecting the completed interior work. Details and esthetics were considered from a craft perspective, and the client built many of the components after a General Contractor had completed the rough framing.
A recently completed second phase has added a backyard family room, pool and cabana. The long narrow pool functions as a lap pool and a reflecting pool, visually connecting the douglas fir and etched glass cabana to the family room deck which hovers over the water. The stone wall of the addition extends out to become the privacy fence. Second floor windows look out over the addition’s green roof.
