Mizoguchi Residence
Kitchen Remodel & Greenhouse Addition
1987 | Del Mar, CA

Second Story Addition

  • Original second story was a U-shape with a small porch area in the U
  • That original porch area was added to the kitchen
  • Wall to wall windows and a glass roof over the sink area create a greenhouse like area letting in lots of light and an expansive view
  • Large appliance garage to right of sink to hide all small appliances
  • Wood shelving and posts next to island are more than decoration and shelving.
  • One post is structural, supporting a beam that allowed the addition to be opened to the family room.
  • The other post hides a vent for the island sink and electrical
  • The island sink is an essential element in the backing area needed by this homeowner

Project Overview

In this small greenhouse addition we captured a second floor porch surrounded by the U-shaped second story of the home, and added it to the kitchen remodeling with part of the new roof as a glass greenhouse over the new sink area. It added enough room to the once corridor kitchen to make a large kitchen with an island.
