Stunning modern home renovation in Portola Valley

Portola Valley Residence-Mark Brand Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

This incredible modern home renovation that has been designed by Mark Brand Architecture is surrounded by the beauty of lush vegetation in Portola Valley, California. The scope of the project was to rejuvenate an old 1980’s modernist house clad in deteriorating vertical wood siding. The house included a greenhouse style sunroom which got so unbearably hot as to be unusable. The floor plan was opened up and the sunroom was completely demolished, replacing it with a new dining room open to the remodeled living room and kitchen.

They added a new office and deck above the new dining room and replaced all of the exterior windows, mostly with over-sized sliding aluminum doors by Fleetwood to open the house up to the wooded hillside setting. Stainless steel railings protect the inhabitants where the sliding doors open more than 50 feet above the ground below. The wood siding was replaced with stucco in varying tones of gray, white and black, creating new exterior lines, massing and proportions. They also created a new master suite upstairs and remodeled the existing powder room.
