The Orr House is an addition and remodel to a 5,080 square foot 1970’s stucco-clad two-story home, built on a steep down-slope lot in semi-rural Saratoga. Although originally built well, the existing home lacked sufficient space for entertaining, had inadequate parking, and outdated interiors throughout.


 


The Design change was to address all of the deficiencies in a creative way, completely in tune with our time. The owner requested that major portions of the framing and skin of the building be retained in the new design, in order to make the project as “sustainable” (not wasteful) as possible. The sensitive combination of new horizontal overlapping panels with the older sloped roof elements of the original house, creates a successful design that is fresh, unique, beautiful to look at and beautiful to live in.
