Highland Drive Mid-Century

The original 1950's mid century modern home sat very low on the property, where you looked down on the roof that covered a one car garage that flanked the entry door. The aim of our remodel was to maintain the charm of the mid-century home, while giving it more street presence. The new addition transforms the presence of the house by replacing the old one car garage next to original front door. Now, the front entry sits 3 feet above the house behind, drawing you in at the street face, and inviting you down into the remodeled living spaces and ocean view 3 feet below. Before, the house was completely introverted and now stands tall inviting you in from the street level.
