Modern Mediterranean - Mountain View, CA

Down-to-studs remodel and second floor addition. The original house was a simple plain ranch house with a layout that didn’t function well for the family. We changed the house to a contemporary Mediterranean with an eclectic mix of details. Space was limited by City Planning requirements so an important aspect of the design was to optimize every bit of space, both inside and outside. The living space extends out to functional places in the back and front yards: a private shaded back yard and a sunny seating area in the front yard off the kitchen where neighbors can easily mingle with the family. A Japanese bath off the master bedroom upstairs overlooks a private roof deck which is screened from neighbors’ views by a trellis with plants growing from planter boxes and with lanterns hanging from a trellis above.

Bei diesem Balkon wehen lange Stoffbahnen seicht im Wind und können nach Lust und Laune den Blick in die Weite freigeben oder als Sicht- und Sonnenschutz dienen. Für diese Sonnenschutz-Idee müssen Vorhangstangen oder Spannseile für die Befestigung angebracht werden können. Verwenden Sie einen Stoff, der wetterfest und waschbar ist. Zudem sollte er genügend Licht durchlassen, damit der Balkon nicht zur Dunkelkammer wird.
