If you don't know the work of the late midcentury architect (and one-time Frank Lloyd Wright acolyte) Ellis Jacob, let this serve as an introduction for you. A triumvirate of California architects and construction professionals—Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, and Flegels Construction, to be specific—collaborated on this spiffy renovation of a 1950s Jacob gem in Redwood City, California, sprucing up the 2,000-square-foot, three-bedroom house. The team opened up the interiors, creating a series of free-flowing common areas, and integrated high-efficiency, modern HVAC systems. We'd move in.
