Menlo Park homeowners asked to have us visit their old home to see if it was a good candidate for a tear down and new home. The existing house was a ranch-style home that had been added onto over the years, resulting in a confusing circulation layout. It was agreed that a demolition and rebuild would be the best strategy.

The new home is 6,000 square feet with two stories above and a full basement below ground. The home’s layout has a formal living room near the front entry for meetings that require it and an open informal kitchen, dining and family room area facing the backyard. The rear yard features a covered pergola outdoor room that is skylit and can be fully curtained off and enclosed for private events. In all, the home consists of five bedrooms and five baths with wine, exercise, wet bar and home theater rooms in the basement.

The house has been designed around the clients and their culture in terms of layout and color material selections. Vastu and Feng Shui both influenced early decisions regarding the layout, placement and adjacency of rooms and functions. With strong red accents and niches for the display of special personal art objects, the house reflects the character of its occupants.
