Mid-sized contemporary gray one-story mixed siding exterior home idea in San Francisco with a shed roof

Palo Alto Contemporary 2015

Contemporary Exterior, San Francisco

Challenge: Infill a single story, single family home between two multi-family 2 story buildings. Response: This Palo Alto Contemporary home focuses windows and clerestories under "butterfly roofs" to the front and back yards. Windows facing the driveway are obscure glass for privacy. The clerestory windows offer an illusion of a second story that blends in with the neighbors. Mid-century duplex converted to contemporary single family home. Taking advantage of open sky and treetops in the park bordering the property in the rear, and shielding the side walls from multi-family units on either side, the floor plan focused all the views to rear and front. A butterfly roof profile allowed clerestory windows to bring light into the interiors.
