ALBANY

SUMMERFIELD

This contemporary 4 bedroom + study home in Albany highlights the connection urban residential design has with its environment. In a fast paced urban sprawl setting, one of the original homes in the Albany Orchards  was a late 60's generic cottage on a full site. A large pear tree is positioned centrally in the back yard creating a perfect  shade tree for summer and allowing the warm sun to permeate into the yard in winter. Taking the original home and the tree we used the beauty of the environment to connect the outdoors with a new extensive addition to a living area that has dual aspect openings onto decks that wrap the house and connect to the tree allowing the occupants to escape to the tranquility of the ever present orchard to unwind.
