Orr Residence

Saratoga, California

The Orr Residence 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, California.

Bathed in natural light from a skylight above, a new atrium connects the entry, the living room, a lower level tatami room and home office, and dramatically illuminates the stairs and a beautiful mahogany bridge that spans the two-story space. The kitchen / dining areas and the living area all share a beautiful new stone terrace, edged with a cantilevered reflecting pool that extends the vistas to the horizon while minimizing views of the driveway below.
