Spanish Style Residence

Located on a corner lot, this home represents careful efforts to balance the building massing with specific features of the site.  With an L-shaped plan, one wing of the house starts with a one-story volume, stepping up to its maximum height at the corner.  This strategy works well to allow the lower portion of the house to tuck under the canopy of a beautiful oak tree in the front yard.  Turning the corner, the house presents a classic, symmetrical face to the street.   Careful attention to detail both inside and out helped create a clean, classic interpretation of the Spanish-style architecture commonly found in Palo Alto.
