Our client is a family with two young children.They have a two story Spanish house that is to small to accommodate them. One parent works out of the home and needs an office space. They also need more space for the children. We decided on removing the original small detached garage and building a new garage with an office on the second floor. As street parking was no issue, the garage would be used as a playroom with large sliding glass doors opening to a deck between the house and playroom, as well as to the garden. The upstairs office would give the parent a private space to work in without any distractions. The building is designed to complement the existing white stucco Spanish house.
