the challenge: a 2300 square foot site surrounded on three sides by a street. a fifteen foot drop from one side of the lot to the other, but great hillside views. significant zoning constraints, an arduous approval process within an established neighborhood, and a conservative budget. creative clients with a keen sense of architectural history.

the solution: channel the ideas of simplicity and form of turn of the century California architect Irving Gill to create a 1000 square foot 2 story home with attached garage. initial study model:21507_pd2_northeast_hi 21507_pd2_northeast 21507_pd2_northwest 21507_pd2_southeast_hi 21507_pd2_southeast 21507_pd2_southwest_hi 21507_pd2_southwest
