The home began as a dark and compartmentalized space and through careful reconfigurations while respecting the Eichler program, a more open, bright, and functional family home emerged. The goals were to open up the spaces, increase the indoor-outdoor flow, and establish a more efficient building envelope including a well insulated roof and walls. There is a more gracious approach to the new front entryway and the historic Eichler color palette was used to modernized the front facade.
