Fascinating Eichler-inspired home renovation in California

Modern Atrium House-Klopf Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

The owners of this family home in Belmont, California, envisioned an Eichler-inspired renovation to their dilapidated 1940s property, so they commissioning Klopf Architecture for the task. The new home retains energy-efficient features, mid-century modern design and a seemingly strong connection to nature through expansive glass walls at every turn. The footprint of the home follows the gentle grade of the hillside, with every square foot of the home keeping in close contact with the ground, creating a greater sense of connection to its surroundings. The exterior facade features stacked stone and white stucco with an overarching post-and-beam roof. Upon entrance into the abode, you are greeted by spacious open plan living, with rooms that slowly reveal themselves as you flow through the home. An indoor/outdoor living room is positioned at the back of the home, offering two immense glass walls, which reveals a beautifully landscaped yard and Japanese garden-inspired atrium. The continually changing seasons of nature are reflected into the interiors since there are direct outdoor views from almost every room in the home.

Since the owners are surrounded by woods and the home situated below street level, they are afforded plenty of privacy. They are also protected from natures elements, retrofitted with high levels of insulation to reduce heat less (and gain), deep overhangs and energy-efficient heat mirror insulating glass (this gives thermal isolation and helps protect against harmful UV rays). With these measures, the homeowners have eliminated the need to air condoning and have exceeded California’s stringent energy codes by almost 40%. We love the home’s connection to nature, soaring ceilings and beautiful stacked stone fireplace that divides the living and dining areas…What do you find most intriguing about this energy-efficient remodel?
