Custom Home Build
AIA Merit Award Winner
A historic Palo Alto home revitalized with contemporary stylings and a unique floorplan flow.
The client loved the location, but was not in love with the existing architecture. So, as architect Joseph Bellomo said, “We took a historical home and gave it a heart attack.” The home did survive the renovation and addition done in a very contemporary style. The front facade was restored, and the interior was completely changed and modernized with sleek base and trim lines, and an interior smooth plaster wall system. The additions for this project included a pool house, studio and offices include plaster, zinc and glass exterior finishes, and smooth plaster walls with epoxy and maple floors. The pool which is the centerpiece of the courtyard has an infinity edge and butts up to the lower floor top-to-bottom window.
