Designed by KUBE Architecture, Casa Abierta is a modern courtyard-style house with integrated indoor and outdoor living spaces. The design includes large sliding glass doors, an enlarged living room, and new kitchen and master suite wings. Exposed concrete masonry, sustainable cement board, raised platform decking, and wood bris-soleils form the modern architectural vocabulary. Keast & Hood provided structural engineering for the additions and renovation of the single-story structure.
