Sacramento New Residence by Klopf Architecture
Klopf Architecture have completed their design for a contemporary, single-story home in place of an existing ranch house in Orangevale, Sacramento in California.
Called the Sacramento New Residence after the county in which it is located, the home is placed on a site that occupies a large plot of land in a semi-rural area. It is surrounded by large oak trees, a seasonal creek and an open field which creates a calm environment. This was taken into account in the design as it takes advantage of the outdoors. One of the main goals was to actually create a strong relationship between the indoor spaces and the natural surroundings of the home.
Klopf Architecture designed and Van Gelder Construction built a new warm, modern residence to replace an existing ranch home. The owners, who previously lived in a Streng home (similar to an Eichler), liked clean lines, simple details, and openness to the outdoors. The site is a large plot in a semi-rural area surrounded by an open field, large oak trees and a seasonal creek. It is a calm environment that invites a close connection with the house. The house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, and 2,633 square foot that is intended to be the home this couple will live in for a long time.
