A Guest House
The need for space for visitors was the original driving factor for the house but it quickly became apparent that an oversized tree covered backyard with a beautiful pool was visually disconnected from the main house. The proposal opens up the back wall of the existing house and places the new guest house as a hinge between the house and the pool. A deck off the new house connects the yard to the pool deck. The minimal guest house packs a spacious master bedroom and large bathroom and a kitchen designed for entertaining. Clever storage in the living room and hallway maximizes the space for visiting family and children.
