Mencacci Residence, Rancho Park


A small backyard is designed to accommodate an accessory building with a pool bath and second story home office, as well as a pool, deck, and outdoor kitchen.  A diagonal splits the small space in half most effectively for lap length and spa on one side and deck with kitchenette and building entrance on the other.  Seven years earlier, the main house daylight basement was brought up to code for habitable space with a generous bedroom and ante-room for extended family coming to live; a sky-lit stair was carved through the center of the main floor access.
