San Francisco-based Klopf Architecture has remodeled a house built by Joseph Eichler, the post-war real estate developer who helped introduce modern housing estates to America. Built in the 1960s, the updated mid-century modern residence is located in the Silicon Valley town of Mountain View. It’s one of thousands of middle-class dwellings built by Eichler between 1949 and 1966 – homes often referred to as Eichlers.
Klopf Architecture, a San Francisco-based studio, has deep experience with the noted dwellings. “We have worked on over 100 Eichler homes, ranging from small remodels to complete guts and significant additions,” said John Klopf, the firm’s founding principal.
