Hillsborough Residence I

Hillsborough, CA

Size: 9,600 sf

Completed: 2013

Market: Single Family Residential

Scope: Structural Engineering

Re-interpreting an addition on the back of an older house in Hillsborough, the front half of the house was maintained, while the rear was thoroughly modernized down to the last detail. Following the basic form of the original house, clean lines, open floor plan and a façade that opens to the expansive yard were all executed with modern materials and details. Careful engineering resulted in re-use of the existing foundations from the addition, and minimal use of steel framing except where long spans needed to be accomplished in shallow floor plates. A sculptural pool house compliments the design of the addition, and the pool acts as a centerpiece to tie the two expressions together.
