In Your Neighborhood – Craftsman Traditional

This upper story addition was featured in the Jarvis Architects 2011 Calendar. The home is a Craftsman Traditional morphing into a more Contemporary look and plan as it steps back up the hill. It is a wonderful example of the architecture reflecting the clients needs and personal style while respecting the original home and the fabric of the neighborhood.

In Your Neighborhood – Piedmont Modern

It looks just like the calendar!

The finishing touches are being put on our modern addition and remodel in the Piedmont hills, which enjoys a panoramic bay view. The house features Blomberg windows recessed in 2×6 walls with corner mullions to resemble the original steel windows. The eyebrow roofs above the windows are also inspired by original architectural details. Photovoltaic panels are on the flat roof and hidden from view by the parapet.

Every Home Needs a Heart

The Lamorinda Weekly recently posted an article on the 2011 Orinda Mayors Awards for Excellence in Architecture. The Howard and Susan Warner Remodeling Project designed by Robin and Cindy received one of the awards, and was the featured design in the story.  The story, written by Laurie Snyder captured the spirit of the collaborative design process, the project history and the home.
