This serene bathroom offers the best of indoor and outdoor life with its open air floor plan, including access to a private courtyard area. The mahogany wood-trimmed windows and doors add a rich accent, while the blown glass globe pendant lights over the freestanding tub provide a modern touch.
This Mission-style home, located on a relatively small corner lot, wraps around an intimate courtyard and pool area. The private outdoor space is accessed by many sets of French doors that lead to all rooms of the home. An outdoor fireplace forms a focal point for the courtyard and serves as a warm place to relax in the evenings.
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.
