Rancho Rinconada Residence, Cupertino - New Two-Story Building

The Program: The client would like to build a brand new 5-bedroom house on this small 5,700 square-foot lot. They needed an open-space concept living/dining/kitchen and two bedrooms on the first floor (office and grandma room), but wanted to maximaze backyard open space.

The Solution: We created an L-shaped house by providing an open concept space and garage in the front of the house, while the two bedrooms were located on the right side at the back, leaving the left to an outdoor dining space and a deeper backyard. We demolished the entire existing house, but kept part of the existing foundation to reduce construction cost.

Budget: Low
