Remade Homes

Some houses need a little help, some houses a lot of help.  serrao design | Architecture is there to help ensure that your house is turned into a home that suits you and your lifestyle. 

 

These homes are new homes on the bones of old houses.

 

Restoration + Addition to early Peninsula Eichler

 

In a small cluster of early Anshen+Allen designed Eichler homes, this particular house was in need of a lot of care.  The sleeping wings were lovingly restored, and the central public space was altered and added on to (vertically + horizontally) to help the home meet the needs of todays modern family.  A 22' wide sliding glass door pockets into a cedar wall and helps this family fully open up their home to enjoy true inside - outside living.

Second floor addition to mid-century ranch

 

This remodel of a low slung U-shaped ranch transforms from front to back, sympathetic to the original Mid Century Ranch Architecture and to the existing traditional buildings in the neighborhood while expanding and creating a new second floor.  The additions are arranged so that there is a private lower patio, and upper deck to gain privacy in an urban setting.

One arm of the ‘U’ houses a stacked sleeping wing, and the other houses the communal program; both arms embrace a courtyard in the rear.

 

High flying on the California coast

 

This young family needed room to grow, and their small and simple one story ranch home was getting tight. Part of the garage was commandeered to create a durable entry to move kids and pets through the house to the backyard after a day at the beach.

The main floor was opened up to allow a free flow of activity between the kitchen and dining room and the rest of the home. A second floor was added to create a family space with white water views, and for a home office for this designer couple.
