The clients wanted a home that was traditional and fit in with the scale of the surrounding neighborhood. The original single story house was added to both above and below. This allowed for a master bedroom suite and a fourth bedroom to be tucked into the roof with balconies facing the views. The garage was placed halfway under the main floor to minimize its mass and give a gracious front porch off of the entry.
