Palo Alto House

New Californian Residence

Design: Diebel and Company

The home flows among three domains for public and private uses and is planned to take advantage of daylighting and the surrounding landscape. The living and dining room space maximizes the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Overhangs shade the house from the warm summer sun and the house opens to cooling breezes. In cooler times of the year, the radiant heated concrete floor slab stabilizes interior temperatures and limit energy use.

The project started as a remodel to the existing house that was built decades ago by the owner’s father. It was determined before long that the house could not meet requirements and a new house was planned. Now the original owner’s son has built a new house just where his father did many years ago.
