San Jose Hillside Contemporary Ranch Remodel/Addition

This hilltop project featured an existing single story ranch home of nondescript design and construction.

Operating under a tight budget, our architectural interventions created a whole-house exterior/interior remodel while retaining most of the existing roofline, exterior walls, and floor framing/foundation. The result is a house with a more open floor plan, better indoor-outdoor flow, and a improved exterior appeal.
