nestled in the hills of belmont in california ‘the kumar residence’ by german born, san francisco-based architects florian speier and matthias troitzsch from zeitgeist design is a remodel of an existing 1950’s mid-century modern ranch house. the 1100 square foot addition responded to the building’s requirements of more living, entertaining and bedroom spaces. upon entering the house the visitor is greeted with an expansive panorama across the san francisco bay – large fixed windows line the deck overlooking the outdoor landscape. the facade and roof is entirely clad in pre-weathered zinc panels, the existing overhangs are trimmed off to create the look of a faceted jewel. the traditional roof lines of the existing structure are integrated into the modern addition, which helot to fill the house with light. the existing low pitch roof was lifted up to 17 feet at the east side like a giant wing – this helped to open the new living and kitchen area to the exterior.
