The owners of this family home in Belmont, California, envisioned an Eichler-inspired renovation to their dilapidated 1940s property, so they commissioning Klopf Architecture for the task. The new home retains energy-efficient features, mid-century modern design and a seemingly strong connection to nature through expansive glass walls at every turn. The footprint of the home follows the gentle grade of the hillside, with every square foot of the home keeping in close contact with the ground, creating a greater sense of connection to its surroundings. The exterior facade features stacked stone and white stucco with an overarching post-and-beam roof. Upon entrance into the abode, you are greeted by spacious open plan living, with rooms that slowly reveal themselves as you flow through the home. An indoor/outdoor living room is positioned at the back of the home, offering two immense glass walls, which reveals a beautifully landscaped yard and Japanese garden-inspired atrium. The continually changing seasons of nature are reflected into the interiors since there are direct outdoor views from almost every room in the home.
Since the owners are surrounded by woods and the home situated below street level, they are afforded plenty of privacy. They are also protected from natures elements, retrofitted with high levels of insulation to reduce heat less (and gain), deep overhangs and energy-efficient heat mirror insulating glass (this gives thermal isolation and helps protect against harmful UV rays). With these measures, the homeowners have eliminated the need to air condoning and have exceeded California’s stringent energy codes by almost 40%. We love the home’s connection to nature, soaring ceilings and beautiful stacked stone fireplace that divides the living and dining areas…What do you find most intriguing about this energy-efficient remodel?

This remarkable transformation of a home in Orinda, California is full of natural light and open, modern spaces, carried out by the design team of Klopf Architecture. The homeowner, who is interior designer Tanja DiGrande, worked with the architects on the project which included a modern addition on the backside of this traditional style residence. The idea was to move away from the original concept of the house, and to create a clear separation of spaces, creating a very minimal aesthetic, with clean lines and a gallery-like modern style. The focus was on drawing in natural light and injecting the space with color and personality through artwork and furnishings. The exterior facade of the new addition was clad in dark gray stucco, with dark steel railings and expansive glazing from floor to ceiling. The volume visually recedes from the original home, serving as a backdrop; an open, modern box. You will notice from the interior that it seems to draw the exterior landscape in, offering striking views of the surrounding property. A comfortable roof deck also allows the homeowners spectacular views and makes for a perfect entertainment space. A cleverly conceived boom and crank enables the homeowners to bring up food and drinks to make entertaining a delight!
As you can see from the interior, minimal, clean-lined spaces showcases the exquisite tastes of the couple. The spacious and open master bathroom in the new addition features a minimal style and a large picture window that frames the forested landscape behind the home, making you feel immersed in nature, while soaking in a tub! From the exterior of the addition, elements such as steel helps to create a more industrial aesthetic. What do you think of this home transformation, what features do you like or not like about it?

This modern custom residence was designed for a family of six by Hawkins Architecture, located on a heavily forested site in Martis Camp, Truckee, California. The couple were renting a home nearby when they came upon this three-acre site, perfect for building a family home that could meet their particular needs. They needed a spacious design to host the many activities that needed to happen on a daily basis. With four children, three of which are autistic triplets, the family needed their home to act as a therapy center, with a host professionals providing speciality services daily. They wanted the home to have a division of spaces so that the couple could have their private domain separate from the hustle and bustle of the children’s daily activities. The homeowners had a vision of a modern dwelling with private zones that could accommodate learning, therapy, sleep and play, while at the same time having common areas for family interaction. Their older son needed his own private retreat, complete with a loft and lounge space to play games and hang out with friends. With 8,000 square feet of living space, the home was divided into four zones, an open concept living, kitchen and dining area, a separate wing for the children, a private master suite and a detached guesthouse. The architect designed several entrances to the home so therapists and adults could come and go without interrupting daily routines. The couple called on interior designer Cheryl Chenault to help them plan functional interiors that would be streamlined from visual distractions and clutter to help their autistic children to live comfortably.

Jenna is a designer and a print maker, creating graphic prints that are ready for framing and decorating your walls, which she sells on her website as well as Etsy. The designer and her husband found this home perched on a hill with sweeping views of the valley below. The 2,500 square foot diamond in the rough went through some major renovations, starting with the kitchen from the moment they received the key. From there, the dwelling got updated one room at a time, including the living room, kitchen, home office, guest bathroom, master bedroom, laundry room, a downstairs movie room, and the outside terrace. The designer still has more work underway, with bathrooms and her husband’s home office, always a work in progress. Her beautiful decorating style is consistent with the home’s surroundings, infusing an eclecticism of each style, which seems to be the mainstay no matter what the season. The designer has fun changing up her home seasonally, with springtime showcasing a romantic shabby chic cottage vibe, with soft, pastel hues. Jenna’s home is full of budget finds and DIY’ing, creating a lovely home surrounded by rugged mountains and a relaxing California lifestyle. We are absolutely crushing on this home renovation!
