The New Home
Style and Size
The new home will be a California-modern home designed by architect Hiromi Ogawa. After interviewing many architects, Hiromi was hired because of her energy, professionalism, and experience designing California-modern homes while running her own firm and while working for Swatt Architects.

The new home is designed to exploit the views and to maximize space, natural light, and functionality. The new home is designed to be “green” in that it will be energy efficient, solar powered, and the guest house is designed to have a roof garden and a green roof. To provide a warmer, inviting feel to the home, all of the doors and windows are designed to be wood, and the siding is designed to be partially wood, partially stucco.

The new home is designed to conform to the size of the homes on the 0 and 100 blocks of Laidley Street and designed to contribute to the modern look of the street. These homes are typically four-story (three over garage). As such, the new home will be a four-story (three over garage), 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath house when combined with the guest house.
