University South Residence, Palo Alto - New Duplex Two-Story Building

The Program: The client wants to create a duplex at a corner lot by subdividing a single house lot. He wants the new building to feel like two distinguish single family houses.

The Solution: The entries of the duplex are provided on different streets. New landscape walls are provided to create an enclosed front yard for more privacy from the bus stop and more distinguished from the other unit. Metal roof and a honed cedar siding bring this cottage style house a modern touch.

The second unit has a much different character than the first unit entry, with combination of geometrical feature to make it unique.
