OP-3-1830

This 1830 square foot "Open Plan" (OP) series home is designed around a zen garden located outside the study. A skylight clerestory window along the ridge brings light deep into the middle of the house. The living room features a computer alcove at one end and a fireplace at the other. The open plan takes its cue from its post and beam construction allowing large areas of glass. The study/home office is located near the front door for easy client access. The study could also serve as a 3rd bedroom or guest room.
