Old Meets New At The Menlo Oaks Residence

MenloOaksResidence1

The Menlo Oaks Residence is a renovation project completed by Ana Williamson Architect in 2009 and sits in Menlo Park, California. The old house wasn’t in a good shape and it seemed that saving it was not really worth the effort, but the owners chose to maintain its structure among with some other parts that defined it, as they liked the traditional aspect of the house and requested the team of architects and designers to keep that and focus on refurbishing it in a modern manner, improving the natural circulation through the living spaces and creating a connection between the interior and the lovely surrounding nature.

The home also needed to be expanded for being able to accommodate the family of five and their relatives, when they visited from England. Due to this requirement, the place received a 1,130 square feet expansion and includes 4 bedrooms and a guest suite. The materials that were used are natural and the home is also eco-friendly. The modern appearance of the house is enhanced by the elegant fittings and furnishings, contrasting in a nice way with the family’s collection of Indian and Japanese antiques. The place is enhanced by the natural light that enters through the home’s large glass openings.
