The renovation of this Monterey Colonial house in Palo Alto, California embraces the history of the historic home.
Originally designed by renowned architect Birge Clark, the revival of this sub-style of Mediterranean Spanish Colonial architecture was popular in the early 20th century.
Fergus Garber Architects was commissioned to refresh the home, creating something more timeless.
The residence has many charming historical features, as well as modern additions that have been incorporated into the renovation project.
The new design features a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The contemporary nine-foot steel and glass doors in the great room opens onto the terrace and lovely garden with swimming pool.
