Myrtle Street Residence ––Redwood City, California The Myrtle Street house took the client’s love of clean, simple detailing and paired it with an environmentally sensitive solution. The existing house was built in 1940 and had a typical compartmentalized layout, with little reference to the site or its solar orientation. The new home opens up the plan to allow for larger gatherings and orients the rooms toward the exterior of the house, embracing indoor-outdoor living. Solar panels, “green” building materials and the addition of natural light are major components of the project.

the slats are probably too close together on this...but possibly spacing them the maximum of 4" apart could work...maybe narrower wood slats.

The light plays nicely. We have had the idea that we would like to match the wood of the fence with the wood of the entrance deck. Our hope is that this separates the garage from the house and reduces the overall massing of our home.
