Modern Home Surrounded by Oak Trees

Modern Living Room Features Soaring Windows

Architectural firm Specht Harpman's goal with this modern redesign was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.

Redesigned Modern Home Features Large Windows

Architectural firm Specht Harpman's strategy was to preserve as much of the original 1970s home as possible while introducing a new design language. New masonry walls extend the house and weave carefully between the trees, creating interior and exterior public rooms on the lower level. Large windows offer a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.
