Undertaken in 2016 as an interior remodel and addition for a private client, this 1950's Palo Alto ranch style house was found to be encroaching the side yard setback, making it a non-conforming situation and limiting any future modifications or additions. Thus, the maximum allowable addition is 44sf. With this in mind, Endemic Architecture designed a 44sf front entry which opens to a rennovated kitchen and living room area.
On the interior, the entry tower contains a reading nook with a blanket that becomes the living the room rug...Or, does the living room have a big blanket on the floor? The project further includes the demolition of interior walls in order to open multiple spaces to each other.
