A low pitched roof with generous protective overhangs and door and window bays distinguishes this take on mid-century modern design. The large roof area provides ample space for solar or photovoltaic panel installation. The living space opens to a covered outdoor area with a translucent panel canopy. Enclosure, a beneficial option in many regions, enhances summer room living. Just 40 square feet larger than its traditional design sibling every room is distinctively airy with an extension. Window bays have low, deep, sills adding special character.
Compact and highly space efficient, the floor plan has individual bedroom and home office–study–guest spaces. The outdoor patio, or deck, is accessed through swing or sliding doors in a large portal bay. A compact u-shaped kitchen integrates an adjacent banquette eating area which doubles as a cozy alcove. Window locations are ideal for a/c saving, cross ventilation.
