Joseph Eichler was a California real estate developer who created a prototype with architects for residential homes in the early fifties that incorporated modernist architecture with a “bring the outside inside” concept. The Eichler home favored wall-to-ceiling windows with glass transoms in all the major rooms with direct access to private garden patios and courtyards. This remodeled single-family home by Klopf Architecture takes an original Eichler home and updates it with a truly “open” design.

It has since been remodeled into a beautiful, quaint guest space with a small deck and breakfast table, two side patios and French doors on all four sides of the cabin to allow direct access to each of the outdoor spaces.
