Not the Eichler Post-and-Beam Style You Know

Two-story Eichler residence in San Francisco

Over time, shingles had been added on the front facade. Referencing Claude Oakland's original drawings, the firm removed and replaced them with vertical grain Kayu-Batu siding. The balconies, also covered with wood shingles, received a plaster finish.

Klopf Architect remodeled a home in San Francisco's Diamond Heights area for a couple; it was originally developed by Joseph Eichler and designed by Claude Oakland in 1962. In this area, Eichler built 100 homes that were largely two-story or split-level, a departure from his classic style: single-story and post-and-beam construction. The owners of this design called on the architects to improve the layout and flow of the residence, introduce more natural light, and enhance the indoor/outdoor connection.
