Mill Valley Residence

Diego Pacheco Design Practice as Architects

A 1940 Mediterranean bungalow was opened up & reconfigured for indoor/outdoor open-plan living. The existing house was dark and cramped and had no connection to the outdoors. The walls between the separate rooms were removed to create a continuous open space that flows from the front entry through the Living Room / Kitchen / Dining into the backyard through a folding glass NanaWall. The Henrybuilt kitchen with a 20-foot-long marble island, vaulted ceiling, and 20-foot long skylight is the focal point of the public space that is now flooded with light from the new skylight and NanaWall.

The private side of the house, which contains a Master Suite and two kids’ bedrooms, is separated from the public side by pocket doors. An additional Guest Suite and Play room / Media room are located downstairs on the Garage Level. The sloping rear yard was terraced to create a flat area for outdoor living with a strong connection to the main public space, blurring the lines between interior and exterior.
