Palo Alto Residence
Palo Alto, CA

Stacking geometries and sculptural design add a level of sophistication to the space-saving features of this family home. To maximize living space on this site with setback restrictions, we repeated and offset a horizontal rectangular form, supporting the second floor with Y-shaped steel that enhances the design. Outdoor rooms created by the staggered volumes become extensions of the floorplan. The open floorplan interior features a central glass stairway, adjoining light wall and generously portioned windows that bring the outdoors inside.
