A House With Zip! contemporary entry
 

A House With Zip!

“Give it zip!” was our client’s plea for the re-creation of their existing 1989 home. It was time for a comprehensive renovation and expansion to the blah and maze-like 3660 SF, two story house.

Chief complaints included: Too compartmentalized, too cramped, cannot entertain, no office for “millions of papers”, no accessible guest suite for aging parents, kids outgrowing their rooms, dated kitchen and baths, forgotten back yard, uninviting front entry. The house also flooded on occasion.

In response to these challenges, all existing spaces were updated, enlarged, and opened, and a new home office and guest suite were created, increasing the area to 4910 SF. Outside, a new pool and outdoor living areas were added. New xeriscaped yards include berms and an arroyo to intercept and redirect pesky floodwaters.
The finished home integrates two themes: regional rustic charm on the exterior and comfortable contemporary cool [zip!] on the interior.

Design: Mark Lind
Project Management: Jon Strain
Photography: Paul Finkel, 2012

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Make a great first impression. Picture it: You crack this door ajar and as you peek inside, the first thing you see is this lovely wood-accented niche with flowers spotlighted. It makes a great first impression before the door is even opened all the way.
