Fantastic Remodeling that Connects the Interior with the Garden

By • Sep 11, 2018

This remodeling, which initially sought to create a connection between the interior of the house and the backyard, has been made by the architectural firm Michael Hennessey Architecture. It is located in the beautiful city of San Francisco, in the United States, and has a total area of 2787 square feet.

Interior connected to the garden area

In 2014, the young family that owns this ranch-style bungalow contacted the architectural firm so that they could carry out the project. Several windows and very small doors were in front of the patio that prevented the desire of the parents to spend large amounts of time outdoors with their children, taking care of the garden, the henhouse, and the landscaping. The family sought to live perfectly between inside and outside.

Modern kitchen comprised of white and light brown wood

The proposed kitchen, the family room, the office, and the master bedroom were designed to open the house to the outdoors. A direct view from the kitchen, the living room, and the backyard allows the family to stay committed to each other throughout the day.

The natural daylight reaches deep into the existing house with large glass panels at the back of the lift, as well as more discreet skylights and windows with slots towards the center of the building. A deep projection on the back covers half the hard impact of the sun.

The backyard was designed as three specific zones: dining room / living room area, lawn / play area and orchard / chicken area.
