Professorville House

New Basement & Complete Two-Story Renovation
Palo Alto, CA

A full basement was built under a charming historic Professorville home to provide much needed space on a constrained site in Palo Alto. The interior first and second floor were completely reworked to open up the floor plan and fill the house with light. A new sculpturally elegant stair organizes an easy circulation through the three levels and functions as a linked connection throughout the house. Large steel windows have been added to the kitchen to provide a link with the historic past and a view to the beautiful new swimming pool and landscaped yard.
