On a deep and narrow lot, a modest home is extended to facilitate a light-filled and clean lifestyle for a family of four. The renovated kitchen connects the older bungalow portion of the home to the new addition as it steps down and transforms into an L-shaped living room and en-suite bedroom. Walls of glass doors wrap two sides of a rear deck that is shared by both rooms, maximizing light and useable outdoor space. A frameless skylight in the bathroom creates the feeling of being outdoors, without sacrificing privacy. Now every space has private and expansive views outward and upward.
