Eco-Conversion of a 1961 Rancher

The existing home on the Stanford Campus was problematic in many ways. Though the home was technically large enough for this family of four, it was also dark, inefficient, and disconnected from the temperate climate of Palo Alto, California. The solution was clear: maintain the original footprint of the home while opening the floor plan to incorporate the outdoors and passive technologies. What came next was a radically remodeled home filled with light and cooled by the local breezes.
