Klopf Architecture in San Francisco delivered big with this minimal addition and rooftop patio.
San Francisco-based Klopf Architecture worked with the owners of this home in Orinda, Calif. to create a clean, modern addition to the traditional home. A metal spiral staircase leads to a new rooftop patio that offers views of the surrounding landscape.
The rooftop patio provides the family of five a place to gather outside and enjoy the woodsy landscape while maintaining privacy.
The remodeled family room features a multi-functional bench that helps to hide from view the retaining wall outside the window. It also houses an ethanol-burning fireplace that provides ambient light in the evening.
The open and clean addition of the remodel is perhaps best exemplified by the master suite with adjoined "wet room" that is separated by a pocket door.
