2017 Region 7 Southwest CotY Award Winner, Universal Design Project Recognition, Residential Addition Over $250,000

The owner requires a wheelchair and other devices for moving within the home. Former modifications to the home were inadequate. A three-story addition to the North end of the house contains a therapeutic lap pool on the first floor, an extension of the bedroom on the second floor, and a large kitchen and family room incorporated into the third floor. All spaces have a tree fort feeling with vistas of the San Francisco Bay. The owner was his own architect and attention was paid to seamlessly tie into the existing structure.
