Treetop Retreat

Contemporary redux — this warm modern home is an inspiring retreat tucked into a quiet hillside of the Forest Knolls neighborhood, with views toward the ocean and Northern California coastline. Its simple, contemporary styling is defined by low sloping roof lines, smooth stucco surfaces, and accented with warm cedar wood eaves.

Our goal — modernize the existing façade with a contemporary material palette. Expand the main living areas (second floor) with a vaulted sloped ceiling for added interior volume and create a reimagined modern floor plan.

Design Highlights

  • Flat black architectural hardware and natural lava stone surfaces in the kitchen, bathrooms and on the fireplace wall refine the interior design. This contrast with the white interior spaces punctuates a “hip” modern vocabulary.
  • Kitchen custom cabinetry is a warm wood grain panelized system that integrates the latest appliance and equipment technology.
  • Main living level (second floor) features a vaulted ceiling and a modern open layout essential for easy family living and a gracious flow for entertaining.
  • Rear yard deck has direct access from first floor master bedroom and family media room, and includes glass sliding door systems to maximize wide views of the wooded hillside and Pacific Ocean views.

Footprint

  • Renovate existing 2-story home to include 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths in a single family home; approx. 2,200 sq. ft. living area with an additional 645 sq. ft. for a finished two car garage (existing space).
  • Structural modifications to develop 200 sq. ft. of new living area at 1st floor of home, new upgraded foundation and construction of new wall and floor framing systems.
