Palo Alto Shingle-Style

This charming home in North Palo Alto pulled inspiration from its surrounding historic heritage and context, with distinct Craftsman style, massing and detail. The two story residence with basement was carefully coordinated with the arborist and geo-technical engineer to be sensitive to the beautiful heritage trees and address the challenging soil and drainage conditions.

The emphasis on indoor-outdoor connections include the welcoming front porch with stone and fine finish carpentry as well as the rear covered patio with open connections between the family room, backyard, and tree canopy above. A detached garage at the rear of the lot was designed with flexibility for use as an art studio or workshop.
