Encino House

Nestled into a hillside of oak trees, this 8,000 sf remodel project merges traditional forms with a modern flow of space for a comfortable and elegant living experience.

To work with the owner’s budget and maximize the site’s potential, we strategically retain a two-story bedroom wing and replace the rest with a partially underground addition. Creating a new luxe basement for a lounge, gym, and theater allows us to reduce the bulk of the building, making the house more harmonious in scale with its neighbors while still accommodating the entire program.

A siting tweak from the existing plan makes the beautiful, oak-shaded outdoor space larger where it is most useful – in the backyard. Long sliders create fluid indoor-outdoor boundaries through the main living areas, pool area, and converted guest house, extending the flow of space across the whole site.
