Expanding on the Eichler concept of large glass walls that connect to nature, the kitchen was shifted away from the front entry, the heavy brick fireplace removed, and a conceptual “void” was created between two boxed structures to form a great room. The truly open format which is enclosed by glass folding doors on both sides expands the living and dining areas creating an expansive open-air pavilion connected to a seating area and fountain on one side, and a second seating area with a fire pit on the other.
