They looked to Pasadena before remodeling.

Expand and unify: that was the challenge in remodeling a 1915 bungalow in Mill Valley, California. The goals were to enlarge the living room, create an entry, and add three bedrooms. Because of the lot's limited size, most of the addition had to be incorporated in a new second floor. For inspiration, San Francisco architect John Goldman looked to the work of the Greene brothers, who built carefully detailed outdoor living oriented Pasadena bungalows early in the century. To unify the design, he used Craftsman-era elements: deep gabled porches, open trusses, trellises.

Outside, trellis-gabled "sleeping porches" off the new upper-story bedrooms flank the entry, which incorporates the former living room space and looks across the new living room to the back garden.
