Second Story

This 1950’s Corte Madera home was small, cramped, and in need of a face-lift. To create the space needed for a growing family, a second story was added. Careful attention to the massing of the house was necessary to have it blend in with its smaller neighbors, while simultaneously achieving the traditional look that a peaked roof would afford. The addition included a large Family Room, a deck with a view of Mt. Tamalpais, two Bedrooms, a Bath and a shared Study Area. The downstairs was also remodeled to include a new Entry Foyer, larger Dining Room, new Kitchen and new Master Bath. The circulation and flow of the floor plan was greatly enhanced as was the beauty and utility of the spaces served.
