Rather than overbuild and overwhelm the modest scale of the surrounding mid-century garden bungalows, this courtyard house and Accessory Dwelling Unit instead maintains the single-story character of its neighborhood.

The one-story ensemble is located on a corner site and is arranged around a north-facing courtyard.

It is a remodel and addition to an existing house, and an attached, open-air carport and a free-standing ADU.

Street-facing facades are almost unchanged, and a new vaulted roof along the primary street unites courtyard, and master bedroom wing with open, living and dining areas.
