Modern Atrium House

The owners who were inspired by mid-century modern architecture, hired Klopf Architecture to design an Eichler-inspired 21st-Century, energy efficient new home that would replace a dilapidated home built in the 1940s. Their new home follows the gentle slope of the hillside while the overarching post-and-beam roof above provides an unchanging datum line.
