  • About Firm
    Terry & Terry Architecture focuses on its ability to combine innovative architectural theory and practice. They have extensive, unique experience with building construction and fabrication that has enabled them to acquire and refine a first-hand knowledge of the relationship between concept, construction and project realization. TTA strongly advocates sustainable, energy-efficient building materials and methods as a means of reducing the energy required to construct and operate buildings.

The design consists of transforming a 1950’s Joseph Eichler home. Using a complimenting modern material palette, the design utilizes the primary floor plan, transforming the existing space and forming the new second floor by folding out a series of horizontal and vertical planes of the ground floor. The new roof form creates a large central area and links the bedroom wing with living area. Poured-in-place concrete masses are used to support the roofs, upper floor and cantilevered main stair landing.
