Clerestory Ridge House
Orinda, California

 

This ridge-top addition and remodel was master-planned in two phases. Phase 1 involved the addition of bedrooms and a kids playroom. A 30-foot-long clerestory “lantern” demarking a new entry is both an aesthetic focal point and the organizational spine for the 700-square-foot addition in the back.

 

Phase 2 called for the kitchen and family rooms to be remodeled and connected more directly with the beautiful gardens developed by the owners. The challenge was to maintain the existing structural load paths, which would dramatically reduce the cost and scope of the job. The finished project doubled the working area of the kitchen and allowed for the patio to become an extension of the family room. The patio gained a solid roof, and with the addition of an outdoor fireplace epitomizes California outdoor living.
