klopf architecture, outer space landscape architects, and flegels construction came together to update a classic, 1950s home, originally designed by the late ellis jacobs. pushing the original intent, the remodel greatly opens the interior, creating a feeling of uniformity from space to space. other improvements include integration of highly efficient energy systems, capitalization of the wonderful redwood city, CA location, a large outdoor patio area, and a general leveling-up of the home in its entirety. deemed the ‘mid-century modern’, the single family residence is 2,000ft2 (not including garage) with three bedrooms, two full baths, and located smack dab in heart of silicon valley
