Palo Alto Eichler Remodel in CA by Klopf Architecture

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

Article source: Klopf Architecture 

Klopf Architecture updated a classic Eichler indoor-outdoor home to better suit the needs of a very busy family. The owners have two rather young kids and are also professionals with unpredictable, busy schedules. The house also had to accommodate the needs of two live-in nannies who cover for the parents when they’re indisposed. With those considerations in mind, the owners selected this house because it was larger than typical Eichlers because past additions had been already been made to the house. However, at the time of purchase the house was in poor condition and needed a complete gut remodel including all new roof, mechanical systems, and electrical, the replacement of dry-rotted siding and framing, some layout changes, and all new finishes. The house is super-insulated and has no need of air-conditioning.

Friday, March 27th, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf ArchitectureArterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.

I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.

Skype HQ in California by Design Blitz

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Design Blitz

Skype’s primary goal was to create a world-class o”ce that would di!erentiate them from their Bay Area competitors in the recruitment of talent. Their new space not only had to be a design statement that reflected their modern but fun personality, but it also had to meet very specific acoustic requirements to support the company’s extensive use of AV. Skype hired Design Blitz architects to design their new North American headquarters on an aggressive budget and schedule. Despite being one of several new o”ces that year for Skype, the completed project ultimately became the standard for the international communications company and also achieved LEED Silver certification.
