Woodview Terrace began as a remodel to an aging mid-century Los Altos house. The cluttered interior partitions were removed, ceilings lifted, and large openings created to allow natural light in and to provide easy access to the surrounding gardens. Centered upon the kitchen, the great room is open and airy with plenty of space to cook inside and out and even for the kids and guests to join in. The kitchen functions as an island in the larger context of the living and dining spaces. It is an elegant and open, working kitchen with a beauty of its own. Tall, glass doors pocket into the walls, allowing the living and dining to flow seamlessly onto the outdoor dining terrace under the shade of the trees.
