Role: Project Architect, CAW Architects
Site: Stanford, CA
Project Size: Exterior accessibility improvements, new trellis design
As part of ongoing improvements at the historic Lou Henry Hoover House at Stanford, the design team was asked to provide accessibility upgrades to give visitors better access to the lower level of the house. The house does not have an elevator, so prior to this intervention, there was no accessible path to the lower level from the upper level. The team, including landscape architects Vallier Design Associates, designed a new outdoor stair and ramp integrated into a new garden design, for a gracious and elegant entry sequence.
