Hoyal Dal Bello Residence
Orinda, California

The project consists of an addition, a partial tear down of the existing house, and the renovation of three original rooms remaining after the tear down.

The design of the house, from the necessity of increasing its size to using the existing foundation as a partial footprint, created a framework from which to work. The resulting simple, dramatic spaces are filled with a balanced light generated from both direct and mysterious light sources.
