LONGWOOD DRIVE

SAN ANSELMO, CA

ALTHOUGH APPROVED BUT UNBUILT, THIS PROJECT REQUIRED THE EXPLORATION OF IDEAS ON ADDING TO AN EXISTING RESIDENCE WITH SPECIFIC SITE LIMITATIONS.

THE EXISTING RESIDENCE SAT ALONG A CUL-DE-SAC WITH EXTENSIVE VIEWS TO THE REAR BUT WITH A STEEP DOWNHILL SLOPE. THE BLOCKAGE OF NEIGHBOR VIEWS PREVENTED ADDING AN UPPER FLOOR ADDITION. WITH MINIMAL SIDE YARD SPACE, THE ONLY DIRECTION TO EXPAND WAS TO THE REAR ABOVE THE STEEP SLOPE.VARIOUS STUDIES WERE EXPLORED IN ORDER TO ADD A NEW MASTER BEDROOM, BATHS, OFFICE, CIRCULATION AND AN OUTDOOR TERRACE OFF THE NEW BEDROOM.
