The Program: The client would like to build a brand new 5-bedroom house with 4 bedroom suites on the 2nd floor in a prestige Los Altos neighborhood. They prefer Craftsman Style with a smaller 2nd floor footprint, but a 4 bedroom suite program present a challenge to the design.
The Solution: We designed an efficient rectangular layout, with two suites at the back and two in front. All circulations are in the middle of the house with direct stair access. Bathrooms are located in between each bedroom to enhance privacy. On the 1st floor, a guest friendly living room is located next to the entry, separated from a more private family/dining/kitchen open space.
Area: 3,500 SQ FT | Budget: High
